Hiroshima University, Japan, has announced its fellowship opening for a junior science communicator. This Hiroshima University Science Communication Fellowship 2018 Program is for someone who has a degree in science communication, journalism, or science, and who is seeking his/her future career in science communication. The fellow will work at Hiroshima University for a minimum of six months (with a possible extension to one year) starting in January 2018. His/her main duties will be to assist with the international dissemination of information on research outcomes made by faculty members of the university. The fellow will receive a monthly salary of 210,000 Japanese Yen, before deductions (for a high-level performer, we may offer a higher salary after the initial six months). The university will arrange for a furnished studio apartment for the fellow, but the monthly rent will be the fellow’s responsibility. In addition, he/she will be given a travel allowance for one-time airfare to and from Japan.
