The CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowship Program offers recent Ph.D. graduates the chance to develop research tools, resources, and services while exploring new career opportunities. CLIR Postdoctoral Fellows work on projects that forge and strengthen connections among library collections, educational technologies, and current research. 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.
The Postdoctoral Fellowship Program currently consists of four tracks. Each has slightly different requirements and parameters, relating to eligible fields of study, funding, and terms of appointment. Data Curation fellowships are hosted in partnership with the Digital Library Federation (DLF).
- Postdoctoral Fellowships in Academic Libraries
- Postdoctoral Fellowships in Data Curation for Latin American and Caribbean Studies
- Postdoctoral Fellowships in Data Curation for the Sciences and Social Sciences
- Postdoctoral Fellowships in Data Curation for Energy Economics
CLIR’s Postdoctoral Fellows in Academic Libraries and CLIR/DLF Data Curation Fellows share information and experiences with one another, gaining a broad understanding of the importance of data and information management to the emerging research environment while becoming a cohort of highly skilled and deeply knowledgeable specialists.
