Climate Tracker Southeast Asia Media Research Fellowship 2020 for Young Researchers

Climate Tracker Southeast Asia Media Research Fellowship 2020 for Young Researchers

Deadline: October 30, 2020

Applications are invited for the Climate Tracker Southeast Asia Media Research Fellowship 2020. Climate Tracker is currently searching for 5 young researchers with media experience to delve into an exploration of how a just and green transition from COVID-19 has been covered across media outlets in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.

Research will emphasise on developing a clearer understanding of the region’s media coverage of this theme and will involve interviews with several journalists to identify their challenges, needs for support, and capacity building.

Anyone who joins the opportunity will undergo custom-designed training and online mentorship, before they dive into national media analysis. An experience, their former media research fellows have said truly enriched their careers.

The Training

You’ll be working with other leading journalists and editors from the region to learn how to:

  • Develop and manage database practices
  • Assess research ethics standards and limitations
  • Map out research plans and timelines
  • Get the best interviews possible
  • Analyze collected data critically
  • And report your findings!

You’ll upgrade your skill sets with short, practical training utilising data visualization tools and in-depth journalism tools critical to journalism in Southeast Asia, such as transparency and information tools that journalists should always have at their fingertips.


  • Open to journalists, aged 18-35, from Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
  • Participants must be able to analyze articles in both their national language and English.
  • Having experience or background in the environmental field will be a plus.
  • People with a full-time job are welcome to apply, given the timing flexibility of the research project! 


Interested in applying? Submit your application by October 30. Show them your history in media and research and tell them why you’d be the best person for this opportunity.
