Research Europe is an independent newsletter covering research policy and
funding. Published fortnightly in print and daily online, it is essential reading at
universities, science-funding agencies, government departments and research
charities across Europe.
We have a vacancy for reporter to cover research policy in the Scandinavian
countries — primarily Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland — for our English-
language online and paper publications. The position may be based either in our
London office, or in one of the countries to be covered.
Applicants should have a good degree; some journalistic experience; the ability
to write daily news to tight deadlines, as well as news analysis; and a passion
for the detail of research policy and politics. They should speak at least one
Scandinavian language, and be able to write and speak English fluently.
Applicants should send a covering letter, CV and three samples of their work to
Colin Macilwain at Protected content by January 25th. Please
state in the application how you learned of this opportunity.
Assessment tests and first interviews will be held in February.
As we expect to receive a large volume of applications, we will only be
contacting short-listed applicants. If you haven't heard from us within 7 days of
the closing date, you have probably been unsuccessful on this occasion, but we
will keep your CV on file for relevant future opportunities.
