Open call: become a Frictionless Data Reproducible Research Fellow

Not hardware specific but data workflow is highly relevant to many in the GOSH Community!

Dear all,

We’re happy to inform you that Open Knowledge International is now accepting applications for the Frictionless Data Fellows Program.

The Fellowship is part of the Frictionless Data for Reproducible Research project, which aims to reduce the friction often found when working with data, such as when data is poorly structured, incomplete, hard to find, or is archived in difficult to use formats. This project, funded by the Sloan Foundation, applies our work to data-driven research disciplines, in order to help researchers and the research community resolve data workflow issues.\

Fellows will learn about Frictionless Data, including how to use Frictionless tools in their domains to improve reproducible research workflows, and how to advocate for open science. Working closely with the Frictionless Data team, Fellows will lead training workshops at conferences, host events at universities and in labs, and write blogs and other communications content. In addition to mentorship, we are providing Fellows with stipends of $5,000 to support their work and time during the nine-month long Fellowship. We welcome applications until 30th July 2019, with the Fellowship starting in the fall. We value diversity and encourage applicants from communities that are under-represented in science and technology, people of colour, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTI+ individuals.

Read more about the fellowship, apply as soon as you can and share widely in your networks: https://blog.okfn.org/2019/05/08/open-call-become-a-frictionless-data-reproducible-research-fellow/

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them on Open Knowledge International’s Discuss, on our Gitter chat, or email the team at frictionlessdata@okfn.org.

Have a great rest of the day!

Best, Lieke Ploeger.
