Our Fellowship Programme 2017 offers £3000 funding for conference visits, running workshops, and other domain or institutional events. If you would like your work supported and you are keen on improving and promoting best practice in research software, then the Fellowship Programme is for you. The Programme allows individuals to gain credibility for the promotion of best practice, network with like-minded people, and learn new skills.
Apply to become a Software Sustainability Fellow and join a network of over 70 Fellows that represent the physical sciences, medicine, biological sciences, mathematics, computer science, social science, creative arts and historical studies, research software engineering, and more.
Our Fellows have a standing in the community, a passion for promoting better computational practice and a social personality to make it all happen. If you’re a researcher who understands the value of software in research, an advocate for the adoption of software skills, or someone who codes to help support research, then this is the right programme for you.
As well as attending conferences and workshops, Fellows run training events for their communities (including, but not limited to, Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry) and novel workshops that bring together people, pool resources to put on larger events, give a voice to others in their communities They also put together computational papers in a short period of time and tailor training for their particular communities.
To see the diversity of people among our existing Fellows, please take a look at their profiles and read the perspectives of a humanities scholar and a scientist. You can also hear about Fellows’ experiences and get tips on applying on the recording of the Fellows 2017 Launch Webinar.
Join the Fellowship and you will be part of a network with an array of opportunities for collaboration. Many of our Fellows from previous years still attend events and interact with the Institute, and we support their work, where applicable, through our continuing Fellowship Fund.
The application deadline is this Sunday 2nd October 2016. Apply soon!
