Organization:The Knight Science Journalism Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, KSJ@MIT for short, seeks to nurture and enhance the skills of a select breed of journalist: those who toil at the complex and often fractious intersection of science and public life.

Our nine-month fellowship program brings together a small group of elite journalists from across the globe for two semesters of study, intellectual growth, and exploration at MIT, Harvard, and other institutions in Cambridge and greater Boston. Founded in 1983, the program is among the most distinguished journalism fellowships in the world, and KSJ@MIT has evolved to include a variety of grants, publications, and other resources aimed at fostering vigorous, accurate, and independent coverage of the sciences.

 

Duty Station: Massachusetts, USA

 

Open To: Journalist, reporters, producers, writers, editors, illustrators, filmmakers or photojournalists.

 

Timeframe: From August to May Academic Year

Fellows are required to produce a research project during the academic year, which can form the basis of a future story, the foundation of a book proposal, or simply be a detailed report on an area of science. All fellows will do a formal presentation on their projects at the conclusion of the fellowship year.

- Seminars: Fellows meet regularly for seminars with top researchers and media professionals.

- Field Trips: The program organizes several trips each year to locations of special interest to science and technology writers.

We offer workshops in various technologies, including mobile video, still photography, digital editing, data journalism and podcasting.

- Workshops: With support from the Kavli Foundation, the program organizes an annual workshop on an essential issue in science journalism, which may range from policy-based questions to basic science backgrounders, such as a series of lectures from leading nanotechnology researchers. These workshops are open to the larger science writing community on a competitive basis but all Knight Fellows are offered automatic admission to these workshops if they choose to attend.

 

Qualifications: In order to be eligible for the fellowship programme a candidate must have the following qualifications:

- Be full-time journalists, whether on staff or freelance. Part-time writers or producers are not eligible.

For more opportunities go to International Organization

 

Organization: The World Trade Organization (WTO) is the only global international organization dealing with the rules of trade between nations. At its heart are the WTO agreements, negotiated and signed by the bulk of the world’s trading nations and ratified in their parliaments. The goal is to ensure that trade flows as smoothly, predictably and freely as possible. The WTO has many roles: it operates a global system of trade rules, it acts as a forum for negotiating trade agreements, it settles trade disputes between its members and it supports the needs of developing countries.  While the WTO is driven by its member states, it could not function without its Secretariat to coordinate the activities. The Secretariat employs over 600 staff, and its experts — lawyers, economists, statisticians and communications experts — assist WTO members on a daily basis to ensure, among other things, that negotiations progress smoothly, and that the rules of international trade are correctly applied and enforced. Roberto Azevêdo is the sixth Director-General of the WTO. His appointment took effect on 1 September 2013 for a four-year term. In February 2017, WTO members agreed to appoint Mr Azevêdo for a second four-year term, starting on 1 September 2017

The multicultural NGO Alkarama is always looking for interns to join its staff, offering two different internships’ programme: legal internship and media internship. Choose the most suitable programme for you and work with a young  non-governmental human rights organisation based in Geneva!

 

For other similar opportunities visit our section International Organization

 

Organisation: Alkarama is a Geneva-based non-governmental human rights organisation established in 2004 to assist all those in the Arab world subjected to or at risk of extrajudicial execution, enforced disappearance, torture, and arbitrary detention. Acting as a bridge between individual victims and international human rights mechanisms, Alkarama works towards an Arab world where all individuals live in freedom and dignity, and are protected by the rule of law. Alkarama brings pro bono legal assistance to victims of the most serious human rights violations, without any discrimination. The organisation focuses its efforts on violations of the right to life, human dignity, physical integrity and freedoms such as extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, torture, and arbitrary detention. Using the international human rights mechanisms and working closely with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR ), Alkarama documents individual cases of violations through direct contact with the victims, their families or lawyers, and submits complaints on their behalf to the United Nations (UN) Special Procedures and Treaty Bodies, asking them to intervene with the State in question to put an end to these violations. Alkarama also brings media attention to the cases and situations it covers, helping victims to have their voices heard and shedding light on the human rights situation of a country, through press releases as well as public reports and analyses published in various media outlets. In order to reach a broader audience, Alkarama increasingly relies on social media, particularly Twitter and Facebook.
