The British Science Association is inviting applications for its 2013 Media Fellowship scheme, which gives scientists with a chance to gain first-hand experience of how science is reported.

The scheme allows scientists to spend three to eight weeks over the summer working with print, broadcast and online journalists in organisations such as The Times, the Guardian and the BBC to learn how news stories are put together.

Successful applicants will get the chance to develop writing skills and help journalists produce well-informed, newsworthy pieces about developments in science.

The deadline for applications is 11 March 2013. More information, including eligibility criteria, experiences from past media Fellows and application form, is available online.
