The Ivan Noble bursary

The BBC has set up a new position within its science and technology news team, in honour of Ivan Noble, who died of a brain tumour earlier this year.

Over a period of six months, the bursary winner will work on the Science/Nature and Technology sections of BBC News Interactive, which produces stories for the web and other text platforms, such as Ceefax and mobile phones.

“Ivan’s illness was only a very short period of his life and the bursary is there to remember his life before he was ill,” his wife Almut said.

“He was a science and technology writer and this is what the bursary marks. I’m very pleased and honoured that the BBC has chosen to remember his professional life before he was ill.”

Anyone tempted to apply? Interviews will be held in the Autumn.
