Science Communication Fellowship

The IIASA science communication fellowship is a highly competitive program that immerses early-career science communicators in the dynamic work of the IIASA communications team.

The IIASA Science Communication Fellowship, established in 2016, provides the opportunity for one to two early-career science communicators to gain hands-on experience in the IIASA Communications and External Relations Department each summer.  

IIASA research focuses on complex global environmental, economic, technological, and social change that we face in the 21st century. These research findings provide important input to policymakers to shape the future of our changing world and science communication helps provide the bridge between researchers, policymakers, and the general public.  

Working as part of the IIASA communications team, the fellows gain experience in communicating complex systems science for a general audience through a variety of platforms including blogs, the website, and the IIASA magazine, Options. Fellows assist with a variety of tasks including editorial work, website maintenance, media relations, event coverage, social media, and other communication activities.  

Science Communication Fellows also work closely with participants in the IIASA Young Scientists Summer Program, producing several pieces of work covering research from the program. 

The fellowship runs from June to August, and provides a modest stipend for living expenses as well as travel costs. The application period for the 2022 fellowship will open in autumn 2021.
