The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) is currently accepting applications for postdoctoral fellowships. CLIR postdoctoral fellows work on projects that forge and strengthen connections among library collections, educational technologies, and current research. The program offers recent PhD graduates the chance to help develop research tools, resources, and services while exploring new career opportunities. Host institutions benefit from fellows' field-specific expertise by gaining insights into their collections' potential uses and users, scholarly information behaviors, and current teaching and learning practices within particular disciplines.
Two types of fellowships are being offered:
- CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowships in Academic Libraries
- CLIR/DLF Postdoctoral Fellowships in Data Curation for the Sciences and Social Sciences
Short video interviews with CLIR postdoctoral fellows, hosts, and program leaders—including ARL executive director, Elliott Shore—provide additional insight into the postdoctoral fellow and host experiences:
- What do postdoctoral fellows and their hosts say about their experiences? (4-minute video)
- What is the CLIR/DLF Data Curation Fellowship? (3-minute video)
The deadline for these fellowship applications is December 27, 2013.
CLIR is still seeking hosts for CLIR/DLF Fellowships in Data Curation. The deadline for host applications is October 1, 2013.
