The 2015 Fellow will work alongside the Oxpeckers core investigative team, using data journalism and geo-mapping analysis to investigate major cross-border environmental stories.
The Fellowship will build on the successes of the 2013 Oxpeckers Chinese Environmental Journalism Project.
Oxpeckers is looking for a Chinese environmental investigative journalist with at least five years’ experience. The Fellow must be able to travel across borders in Southern Africa.
Investigations will be showcased through the Oxpeckers’ local media networks, as well as the Fellow’s home media.
The Fellowship, to be taken up from August 2015, covers the international airfare, accommodation, local travel, as well as a monthly stipend.
Following the three-month Fellowship, the successful candidate will return to his / her current employment and continue to receive assistance from Oxpeckers with reporting and links.
To apply, please send a motivation of not more than 500 words, your CV/resumé and two examples of your work, to [email protected] by 30 June 2015.
