The Netherlands eScience Center is looking for researchers who have the ambition to promote or improve the use of research software within their organization or discipline. We invite them to apply to become an eScience Center fellow.
During this session, we will provide information about the Netherlands eScience Center Fellowship Programme and answer questions potential applicants may have. For more details on the Programme, visit the Fellowship Programme page on the eScience Center website, or read the full call for applications text.
Please register if you would like to attend. If you register, you will receive a Zoom link for the session closer to the date.
This fellowship is aimed at those who want to make a difference in improving the awareness, expertise, or state of research software within their lab, institute or academic community. Research software can be any piece of code, script, package, tool, library, or programme written for research.
Each fellow is expected to carry out activities to this end within the duration of their fellowship (12 months). Examples of initiatives and activities are (but are not limited to):
- Creating a tutorial around a research software package developed in-house
- Creating a series of videos on good research software practices
- Inviting speakers on the topic of sustainable research software for an interactive seminar
- Running a hackathon where researchers can improve the reusability of research software
- Setting up a discipline-specific community to exchange expertise about digital tools
- Increasing visibility or wellbeing of researchers who write code in any way
Fellows will have a personal budget of which they can use to support the organisation of such activities. This budget can be used to cover expenses and consumables. They will also receive consultancy hours from eScience Center employees.
The fellowship plan must be primarily focused on increasing the visibility, recognition or use of research software in the Netherlands, but international outreach and community-building is allowed as well.
