CLIR, in cooperation with its Digital Library Federation (DLF) program, is now seeking academic libraries, data centers, or other research institutions interested in hosting a 2014-2016 CLIR/DLF Postdoctoral Fellow in Data Curation for the Sciences and Social Sciences.

These two-year fellowships will provide recent science and social science Ph.D.s with professional development, education, and training opportunities in research data curation. The fellows’ work must draw upon their disciplinary expertise in order to advance research data practices and services at their host institutions.

Hosts may include any academic, independent, public, or government library, archive, or museum, or any partnership or consortium made up of the same, provided it has a demonstrable need of a fellow's subject expertise to pursue a project or initiative specifically related to data curation that is also commensurate with its mission. Fellowships are open to any specialty or domain in the sciences or social sciences in which the Ph.D. is the terminal degree.

Participating host institutions will pay all salary and benefits costs for the 2014-2016 fellowships. Through a generous grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, CLIR will pay all costs for each fellow’s education and training.
