The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) has received a $679,827 grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to help launch a new CLIR/DLF Data Curation Fellowship Program. The program, an expansion of CLIR’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Academic Libraries, will provide recent Ph.Ds with professional development, education, and training opportunities in data curation for the natural and social sciences.
For the program’s first cohort, CLIR is now recruiting six data curation fellows in cooperation with its partner institutions: Indiana University, Lehigh University, McMaster University, Purdue University, the University of California Los Angeles, and the University of Michigan.
Information about the program and position descriptions are available at http://www.clir.org/fellowships/datacuration. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until all positions are filled, but no later than June 30, 2012.
