Science Journalist in Residence

The University of Florida’s Science Journalist in Residence Program (SJR) brings leading science writers to the UF campus in Gainesville, Florida, to interact with faculty and students. Visiting science journalists give public talks, speak in classes and meet with faculty and students with shared interests across the university. Based in the College of Journalism and Communications, the program has supported visiting science journalists with a wide range of interests and specializations — from sports science to the science of dogs, and from experts in weather science to social media and technology to COVID-19.
