The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) seeks applicants for two Knight International Journalism Fellowships to spearhead its Code for Africa (CfAfrica) data journalism initiative in Kenya and South Africa.
Working as part of a larger pan-African team, each selected fellow will help teams of CfAfrica data journalists and technologists embedded into partner newsrooms and local CitizenLabs harness data to build compelling journalistic projects, using strong mobile and interactive web components.
Candidate must be fluent in English and have a strong track record using technology to tell stories to audiences. Proficiency in other languages spoken in the target countries is a plus.
The fellowship will be a year long, with the possibility of extending for up to two more years. For the duration of the fellowship, the fellow will be based in Kenya or South Africa.
Senior journalists with experience in the Global South, especially Sub-Saharan Africa, and a deep knowledge of technology can apply.
