Open data in science fellowships
Panton Fellowships offer £8,000 to scientists who promote open data in science. Apply now!
Panton Fellowships can be held whilst you are working or studying, and should supplement your current funding. Fellowships last for one year. The scheme is designed to be flexible, and there is scope for Fellows to carry out a range of activities.
Fellows may wish to:
* Initiate discussion about the role and value of openness,
* Explore practical solutions for making data open
* Catalyse the scientific community and for push change.
Panton Fellowships are open to all, and are particularly suited to graduate students and early-stage career stage scientists. The scheme is overseen by a distinguished Advisory Board of scientists and open data advocates. To be eligible, applicants must have the relevant rights to work in the UK, and should reasonably expect to be working and/or studying in the UK until March 2013.
Applicants should send a CV and covering letter to jobs [at] okfn.org by 24th February.
