Bureau Local collaboration

Apply for a 2018 Google Fellowship - come work with us!

Are you a student with a keen interest in a career in data journalism? Then apply for a Google News Lab Fellowship at the Bureau.

This is a fantastic opportunity to spend eight weeks working at the Bureau over the summer on data-led projects.

The Fellowship, supported by Google’s News Lab, is an exciting initiative that offers experience to students interested in journalism and technology. 

At the Bureau many of our investigations are based on collecting, cleaning and analysing large datasets. We are particularly interested in applicants with an interest in moving into data journalism – either as an investigative reporter or as somebody keen to visualise datasets to tell important stories.

We will be looking for applicants who show some interest in our work. Successful candidates will probably work on our Bureau Local project or our global superbugs investigation.

Read Rachel Lavin's blog here, about her time here as the 2017 Google Fellow. Rachel worked in our Bureau Local team, and produced data visualisations and style sheets for local investigations. 

The successful candidate will be based at the Bureau’s office in London and will work with our experienced reporters to develop stories. Fellows will be offered a generous stipend covered by Google News Lab over the period of the eight week placement.

You must be a UK student or a student studying in the UK with a current visa to qualify.
