AAS 234 Press Conference
2018–2019 AAS Media Fellow Kerry Hensley emcees a press conference at the 234th meeting of the American Astronomical Society.

Are you an astronomy graduate student who’s interested in science communication? Do you wish you had the opportunity to explore that interest and gain professional development without having to take time off from your graduate studies? Do you want to write for AAS Nova, report on astronomy meetings, and help organize and run AAS press conferences?

Then the AAS Media Fellowship might be for you! This position was developed in 2017 by the American Astronomical Society to provide training and experience for a graduate student in the astronomical sciences interested in science communication. The fellowship is a remote, quarter-time, one-year position (with the possibility of extension to two years) intended to be filled by a current graduate student at a US institution. The new AAS Media Fellowship term will begin in Fall 2021.

If this sounds like a good fit for you, you can get more information on AAS Nova or the AAS Job RegisterApply by 23 July 2021 by submitting your contact information, advisor approval, a cover letter, and a short CV to personnel@aas.org. See the Job Register posting for full application details.
