Science and Health Journalists Invited to Apply for Unique Woods Hole Research Fellowship

WOODS HOLE –Science journalists, writers, producers, and editors are invited apply for a fellowship in the acclaimed Logan Science Journalism Program, to be held May 29-June 7, 2018.

The deadline to apply is March 1.

The fellowship allows journalists a chance to forget about story deadlines and immerse themselves in the process of basic biomedical or environmental research.

The main emphasis is on research activities, enriched by discussions, scientific talks, and excursions.

The program is held at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole, an international center for scientific research and education and an affiliate of the University of Chicago.

Alumni of the MBL Logan Science Journalism Program include hundreds of prominent journalists from U.S. and international media outlets.

Fellows choose between one of two courses. In the Biomedical Hands-On Course, fellows gain exposure to the fundamental techniques and concepts that underlie current approaches to biomedical research.

Fellows in the Environmental Hands-On Course experience field and laboratory science at the MBL and at a field site on Cape Cod, and discover how human activities are shaping the health and functioning of a coastal ecosystem.

Up to four fellows will be selected to spend an additional four days at the University of Chicago after participating in their Hands-On Course in Woods Hole.

To apply, visit and submit an application by March 1, 2018.
