> Hello data-driven journalists! Have you ever thought about studying and delving deeper into what it means to do computational and data journalism? The University of Maryland Philip Merrill College of Journalism is now accepting applications for Ph.D. fellowships.
> At the core of our Journalism Ph.D. program is the conviction that a deep understanding of the past, present, and future of journalism is critical to democracy. We foster this inquiry through faculty members at the College who research journalism, a network of courses and colleagues across the university who teach our students in related subjects, as well as elite cohorts of Ph.D. students who pursue the deep study of journalism in its current and evolving forms. We are particularly interested in developing the next generation of scholars in computational and data journalism.
> Are you interested in joining us? We are accepting applications for full fellowships (tuition and living expenses) to our program until February 1st. We offer a supportive, personalized teaching experience within the broader context of a range of opportunities across the University of Maryland. Small class sizes and a tradition of joint research with faculty members foster a collegial atmosphere and successful students. More than 80 percent of our Ph.D. graduates go on to the careers in university teaching, including a significant number in tenure-track jobs.
> What are we looking for? We are seeking people who want academic and research careers in the field of journalism studies. The program is focused on a range of topics including journalistic practice and ethics, studies of audience in the digital age, journalism history, and journalism in the global context. We benefit from our proximity to Washington, D.C., a short metro ride away, as well as from an inquisitive and international community of scholars at the University of Maryland.
