Singapore seeks "science writers in residence"

The Agency for Science, Technology and Research, or A*STAR, "Singapore's lead agency for fostering world-class scientific research and talent for a vibrant knowledge-based Singapore" has released details of the Singapore Visiting Science Writer-In-Residence Programme.

There will be two residencies each year, lasting up to four weeks. A*STAR will pick up the cost of the round trip and living expenses in Singapore. The application deadline for the first year of the programme is 15 May 2008.

"We hope that this programme will allow journalists to gain new perspectives through a first-hand experience of science in Singapore at Biopolis and Fusionopolis. Singapore offers a unique, integrated environment that facilitates the sharing of diverse scientific expertise across biomedical science and physical sciences and engineering to push the boundaries of science and technology and create new knowledge for the benefit of society," said A*STAR Chairman Lim Chuan Poh.
