Bringing new voices to the Bulletin’s trusted coverage

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Editorial Fellows Program rests on the understanding that science is expected to advance more in the next 40 years than in all of human history, raising political and ethical questions whose answers will shape the future safety and security of our planet.

Editorial Fellows have experience in one of the Bulletin’s three main areas: nuclear risk, climate change, and disruptive technologies. They have an established record of publishing quality work or have been identified as an emerging leader in their respective fields. Fellows produce a regular column for which they are compensated. The program is a one-year commitment with the opportunity to renew.

The Bulletin’s Editorial Fellows Program is part of an organizational commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion designed to promote a greater variety of viewpoints and lived experiences on the Bulletin’s platform. Underlying the Bulletin’s commitment is a powerful practical reality: A more diverse group of authors who write regularly for the Bulletin will improve the quality and the impact of our journalism.
