The Mozilla Fellowship for Science - applications now open

Posted by s.hettrick on 24 June 2015 - 9:20am

The Mozilla Fellowships for Science present a unique opportunity for researchers who want to influence the future of open science and data sharing within their communities.

Apply now to become an inaugural 2015 Mozilla Fellow for Science. The application call is now open. It will remain open until 14 August 2015 at 11:59PM EDT. More information on how to apply can be found below.

We're looking for researchers with a passion for open source and data sharing, already working to shift research practice to be more collaborative, iterative and open. Fellows will spend 10 months as community catalysts at their institutions, mentoring the next generation of open data practitioners and researchers and building lasting change in the global open science community.

Throughout their fellowship year, chosen fellows will receive training and support from Mozilla to hone their skills around open source and data sharing. They will also craft code, curriculum and other learning resources that help their local communities learn open data practices, and teach forward to their peers.
