From the GMR: CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowship Program Deadline is December 31

The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) Postdoctoral Fellowship Program offers recent Ph.D. graduates the chance to help 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, research practices and scholarly information behaviors, and current teaching and learning methods within particular disciplines.

In 2013, CLIR will offer three distinct kinds of postdoctoral fellowships. Each has slightly different requirements, relating to eligible fields of study, funding, and terms of appointment.

CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowships in Academic Libraries:

CLIR/DLF Postdoctoral Fellowships in Data Curation for the Sciences and Social Sciences:

CLIR/DLF Postdoctoral Fellowships in Data Curation for Medieval Studies:
