The Coda-Caravan Fellowship

The Coda-Caravan Fellowship is an opportunity to work for nine months in a dynamic, collaborative, cross-border newsroom environment with award-winning colleagues, and to publish both deeply researched, immersive magazine stories and shorter, incisive pieces of reporting for an intelligent global audience.

We expect the Coda-Caravan fellow to report stories and pitch ideas that align with our overarching editorial themes.  These include disinformation, authoritarian tech, rewriting history, and the war on science.

As India approaches the 2024 general elections, we believe these themes will underpin much of the public conversation. We want a Coda-Caravan fellow who is committed to engaging with India’s complexity and who is curious about the experiences of people across Indian society in a politically and economically anxious time.

The Coda-Caravan fellow must have at least five years of experience and a demonstrable capacity for longform reporting and writing. Experience in multimedia reporting and/or data analysis is a plus. The Coda-Caravan Fellowship is only open to candidates in India. We give special consideration to candidates from marginalized groups.

This is a fulltime reporting position and the fellow will receive a stipend of Rs 85,000 per month.

To apply, submit a cover letter, a resume and three ideas for stories to [email protected] by December 2.
