York Science Communicator in Residence Program now open for applications

The York Science Communicator in Residence program, based in the Faculty of Science, is once again open for applications for its fourth year of the program.

The Faculty has hosted some top science communicators who have had the opportunity to pursue creative projects while immersed in an academic scientific setting, to meet with researchers to explore first-hand the depth and variety of research at York University, and to organize training opportunities in science communication for students and researchers.

The program has hosted six residents to date, including reporters Kate Allen (Toronto Star) and Matt McGrath (BBC), freelance radio journalist Molly Segal, freelance writers Dan Falk and Patchen Barss, and photographer B.D. Colen.

The program welcomes applications from Canadian and international science communicators in all media (e.g. digital, print, radio, television, etc.) who are currently pursuing either full-time or freelance careers, as well as scientists who are actively engaged in science communications.

The deadline to apply is April 20.
