The American Geosciences Institute is currently accepting applications for the AGI/Schlumberger Fellowship in Geoscience Communication. The successful candidate will play a leading role in AGI’s Critical Issues program, a new initiative to make relevant geoscience information more accessible to decision makers at all levels.
The program is supported through AGI's Center for Geoscience Education and Public Understanding. The fellowship offers a superb opportunity to link the geoscience community and our understanding of the Earth to decision-making processes throughout the country.
The successful candidate will be a highly creative communicator who is proficient in traditional and new media and can deliver geoscience information effectively and efficiently to targeted audiences. We seek applicants with excellent writing and graphical skills who have experience in web content development and social media, in addition to a broad geoscience background. Enthusiasm and team spirit are essential. Candidates should have completed, or be currently pursuing, a Master's or higher degree.
The fellowship is a 6- to 12-month appointment, based at AGI headquarters in Alexandria, VA. The fellowship carries a stipend of $4,000 per month. The starting date for the Fellowship will be based on the schedule of the successful candidate, but is expected to be in January or February 2015.
The closing date for application materials is October 26, 2014.
