A new fellowship announced today as a joint venture between the Nieman Foundation for Journalism and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society offers the chance for one distinguished candidate to spend a year at Harvard conducting research on the advancement of digital journalism. Sounds like a pretty sweet gig to us!
“The fellowship was created to addresses the critical need for fresh ideas and research in news reporting,” said Ellen Tuttle, Nieman’s Communications Officer. “Candidates for the new yearlong fellowship will be asked to propose a specific course of study or project relating to journalism innovation and journalism’s digital transformation.”
The winning candidate will spend the 2012-2013 academic year researching their proposed course, and will be allowed access to all available resources at Harvard and the surrounding area.
The application deadline is February 15, 2012, so get to work!
