Midcareer journalists can apply for a fellowship at Oxford University.
The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism seeks applicants for its research fellowship program of either three, six or nine months.
The program gives visiting journalists from around the world an opportunity to critically reflect upon their profession, to research a subject of their choice under the supervision of an academic specializing in that area, and to enjoy the breadth of academic, cultural and social life at the University of Oxford.
Fellows will complete an academic paper roughly 10,000 words in length, with preference given to projects within the institute's areas of focus - the business of journalism, the evolving practice of journalism and relationships between journalism and accountability.
Applicants with at least five years' journalism experience and strong English skills should submit a resume, personal statement, project proposal, references and work samples.
The fellowships, which commence from October 2014, include the Thomson Reuters Foundation Fellowships, Gerda Henkel Fellowship in the field of Humanities, Said-Asfari Fellowship for journalists from the Levant and the Wincott Fellowships for Eastern European business / economic journalists.
The deadline is Jan. 31.
