By James Baker, University of Sussex. Applying to become a Software Sustainability Institute Fellow was one of the best decisions of my career. Now that may sound a little hyperbolic, but looking back over the four years since I made the application to become a fellow, so many experiences I've enjoyed, encounters I've had, and connections I've made can be traced back to that decision.
By Vincent Knight, Nikoleta Glynatsi, and Geraint Palmer, from Cardiff University, School of Mathematics. Being a Software Sustainability Institute Fellow creates a sense of belonging to a community and legitimacy to a practice. This blog post is co written by three mathematicians at Cardiff University, each at various stages of their academic career.

By Raniere Silva, Community Officer, Software Sustainability Institute. Happy New Year! What are your plans for 2019? Would £3.000 help you accomplish your plans? The Institute's Fellowship programme funds researchers who want to improve computational practice in their areas of work. We’ve recently opened applications to the Fellowship Programme until 3rd February 2019.
By Robyn Grant, Senior Lecturer in Comparative Physiology & Behaviour, Manchester Metropolitan University. I was inspired to apply for the Software Sustainability Institute Fellowship Programme in 2014 when I saw that it was not just for software developers, but software users too. I am a biologist, working on animal sensing and movement, and have spent quite a lot of my time working with programmers to develop software that can track my high-speed videos of animals moving in complex ways.
By Iza Romanowska, Barcelona Supercomputing Center. If someone told me five years ago that I would be a Fellow of any organisation with the word ‘software’ in it, I’d just laugh. Yet, it turns out being a diehard humanities person does not save you from the academic inevitability of engaging with research software.
