Funding for travel and more: the new Fellowship programme
In August this year, the Software Sustainability Institute will launch a Fellowship programme that will fund researchers in exchange for their expertise and advice. The programme will build on the success of the Agents’ network and will share the same goals: gathering intelligence about research and software from all disciplines, and encouraging fellows to develop their interests in the area of software sustainability.
Each Fellow will be allocated £3000 to spend over 18 months. The funding will be flexible to support activities that are beneficial to both the Fellows and the Institute: to fund travel to conferences, to set up and run workshops, to organise software sustainability BoFs at domain conferences, or to host or teach at a Software Carpentry bootcamp.
Recruitment of about 15 Fellows will start in August. A launch event in early September will provide an introduction to the programme and will give researchers the opportunity to ask questions in person (or virtually, since the event will be webcast), as well as talking to current recipients of the fellowships and members of the Institute team.
How to apply
Apply using the online application form.
Recruitment will open in August and will run through to mid-September. The leading applicants will be invited to an event where a final selection of the Fellows will be made.
We are looking to recruit Fellows across a wide range of experience, so we’re looking for anyone from PhD students to Professors. Applicants must be working in a research organisation based in the UK.
