The deadline for applications to the Software Sustainability Institute’s Fellowship Programme 2022 is 23:59 GMT on Sunday 31 October 2021.
We welcome applications from individuals with a wide variety of backgrounds, experience and career stages who want to improve how research software is done in their domains and/or area of work. If you are based in the UK or have a formal affiliation with a UK based institution or office (or are based outside the UK and applying to our International Fellowship pilot), and are any of the following then the Fellowship Programme is for you!
a researcher who uses software
a developer who writes tools for researchers
a research software engineer who supports the work of researchers with software
an advocate for best practice in software use for your research domain
in a leadership role in research projects or organisations that make heavy use of software
a user of research software
passionate about software in research in any way
Each Fellow will be allocated £3,000 to spend over 15 months beginning 1 January 2022. The funding is flexible to support activities that are beneficial to both the Fellow and the Institute. For example, the funding can be used to attend conferences, organise and run workshops, facilitate software sustainability sessions at domain conferences, nurture or contribute to communities of practice, collaborate with other Fellows, or host, organise or teach training events.
In light of the ongoing situation around COVID-19, we encourage applicants to consider that travel and in-person events may not always be feasible, and we particularly welcome plans with online-based activities. You can read more about how our current Fellows adapted their plans to make the most of their SSI Fellowship in a COVID-19 world and watch some of our 2021 Fellows’ application videos for inspiration.
You can find out more information about the Institute, Fellowship Programme, how to apply and hear first-hand experiences from some of our Fellows through the Launch Webinar recording.
