The York Science Communicator in Residence program aims to recognize outstanding science journalists and communicators and to promote excellence in science-related communications. Residents are immersed in an academic scientific setting where they get to know eminent researchers who, in turn, learn from the residents about effective ways of communicating science stories. We welcome applications from Canadian and international science journalists 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.
Applications for the 2018-2019 program are now closed.
