DEADLINE: Climate Social Science Network Reporting Fellowship

Event Date: 
June 30, 2021

The Climate Social Science Network (CSSN), a global network of hundreds of social scientists studying obstruction on climate change based at Brown University, is accepting applications for an in-residence journalist at the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society (IBES) for fall 2021 or winter 2022. The journalists-in-residence will advance their reporting career with access to a leading institution working at the intersection of climate change policy and the study of organizations, social movements, ideology and discourses, with opportunities for collaboration on investigative research with local and global teams of social scientists. CSSN’s working groups are developing collaborative research defining the direction of our understanding of climate obstruction. Brown’s Climate and Development Lab (CDL) supports four to six teams conducting original research. Details of the program include:

  • 6-12 week visiting fellowship at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island
  • Up to US$15,000 stipend to cover travel, housing and living expenses ($1250/week)
  • Office space in the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society
  • Opportunity to collaborate with an existing team from CSSN and the Climate and Development Lab as “embedded” researcher
  • Potentially develop a joint project with CDL or CSSN working group members
  • Exclusive access to CDL faculty and students’s research prior to publication, and opportunities to collaborate on journalistic stories with Brown undergraduates
  • Option to audit 1-2 classes at the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society

The fellowship is open to freelance journalists and staff reporters. Deadline: June 30, 2021.
