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.

We collect a good amount of data in the Fellowship Programme application form, but we only provide the screencast and writing sample to reviewers – the information about candidates is used to assign reviewers to mark sheets, as reported in "Assigning Fellowship programme 2018 applications to reviewers".
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.
