Applications are now open for our inaugural class of 2015 Mozilla Fellow for Science. 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. 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.
The Mozilla Science Lab is a Mozilla Foundation initiative exploring how the open web can improve scientific research and education. We facilitate learning about open source and data sharing, and also work to empower researchers as leaders within their communities.
This call is open to early-career researchers and students in the US, UK and Canada who are eager to receive training and support to further open research at their institution, with an initial focus on life and natural sciences. Mozilla Fellows receive a stipend as well as certain other supplements/allowances. Please read carefully through the details below before applying. If you have any questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Unsure if you tick all of these boxes? Drop us a line – we’d be happy to chat.
The call closes AUGUST 14, 2015. Click here to apply today.
