Opportunity: The Club of Rome Communications Fellowship

The Club of Rome is currently accepting applications for its Communications Fellowship 2023.  The fellowship is a five-month mentoring programme aimed at increasing the diversity of voices covering sustainability issues and supporting early-career communications professionals who are from underrepresented communities and regions. It will be a remote placement with the successful fellow working from their home environment and with one trip to meet members of The Club of Rome team (likely in Europe). The fellowship offers a modest stipend towards living costs and includes work-related travel costs.  

The communications fellow will gain experience in communicating complex systems thinking for non-specialist audiences through a variety of platforms including the website, multimedia and social media. The successful candidate will work directly with the communications team assisting with a variety of tasks including web publishing, media relations, event coverage, multimedia, social media and other communication activities.

  • Some experience in writing about systems thinking or sustainability research for non-specialist audiences via blogs, newspapers, university websites or other outlets. 
  • Written and oral fluency in English and a proven ability to understand complex scientific research or systems thinking. 
  • Experience with, or interest in, social media, video, photography or other multimedia. 
  • Alignment with the beliefs and vision of The Club of Rome.

Applicants from all countries are welcome, but priority will be given to citizens or residents of countries/regions underrepresented in sustainability communications.

  • CV/Resume 
  • Cover Letter 
  • One writing sample of no more than 800 words about a scientific topic or sustainability issue aimed at a general non-specialist audience (e.g., article for a newspaper or magazine, blog post, or op-ed)   
  • A letter of recommendation

The application deadline is 3 July 2023.  Incomplete applications will not be considered.
