|African researchers needed for TV show|
|Thursday, 11 July 2013 00:00|
Are you an Africa-based researcher? Do you have what it takes to be on TV? Good Morning Africa, a digital satellite TV show aired across Africa, has joined forces with Research Professional Africa to offer African scientists a platform to communicate their research to an audience of millions.
Good Morning Africa is seeking scientists who are willing to be interviewed at their institution about their science, and the potential it has to help their countries and their continent.
The ten-minute interviews will be featured on the Good Morning Africa show, which gets aired in over 49 African countries daily, reaching a possible 200 million people.
These interviews will showcase how African scientists are contributing to the continent’s development. Whether you work in crops, malaria, renewable energy or aquaculture, this is an opportunity not to be missed!
To have a shot at being selected for an interview, all you need to do is write us and tell us about your research.
Interested scientists should email email@example.com, telling us in no more than 800 words why you should be selected for an interview. Submissions will be judged and read by non-scientists, so avoid heavy scientific jargon. In addition to your name, current place of work and short CV, applications need to provide details on:
1. Your current research
2. The real-world problems that it addresses
3. The direct impact it could have on Africans
Applications will be accepted throughout July and August. Get your application in sooner rather than later to increase your chances! Scientists of any age can apply.
