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 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. CLIR solicits and facilitates the host and fellowship application processes. Fellows are then hired directly by host institutions.
CLIR is taking time in 2020 and 2021 to support our current fellowship cohorts and is not currently planning to accept applications for a 2021 cohort. Once we have the next fellowship cohort plans confirmed, we will post all eligibility requirements, etc. on the program webpages. Potential host institutions and fellows may sign up for CLIR’s Programs & Grants Mailing List to keep up to date on all our program announcements and deadlines.
