        Subject: The National Librarian's Research Fellowship in Digital Scholarship - 3 month fellowship with National Library of Scotland

Dear colleagues,

Please find information below about a new digital scholarship fellowship
opportunity with the National Library of Scotland. We welcome
applications for remote residency of this post - please see below.

Best wishes,


This Fellowship supports an exciting opportunity for a three-month
period of research into of any aspect of The National Library of
Scotland's data collections available on the Data Foundry
(https://data.nls.uk/, using data science or other digital research methods 
or techniques. Fellows should undertake research for a significant piece of
publishable work using one or more of these newly-released data collections.

As a digital fellowship, occupation of The National Librarian's Digital
Scholarship Research Fellowship does not require residency within the
Library: we welcome applications for remote 'residency'. The Fellow
should, however, ensure that they remain in regular contact with the
Library throughout the three month period and offer digital updates for
staff and external audiences.

The Fellow should also use some of the award to visit the Library for at
least one week during the three month period, to present findings,
contribute to the Library's public and internal events programmes and
deliver any other in-person engagement activities (for example, around
the methodology and approach to the project). Any lectures must be
delivered in the English, Scots or Gaelic languages.

This award is intended for scholars who hold a doctorate, or have
attained relevant equivalent experience in employment in higher
education or research, and who are active in a relevant field of
research. Early career researchers are encouraged to apply, as are
international applicants. International scholars are responsible for
ensuring that they meet UK visa requirements and obtaining the correct
visa where required. We welcome applications from candidates of all
backgrounds: the National Library of Scotland recognises the value and
importance of diversity and promotes equality in our working practices
and culture.

Applications deadline: Monday 6 April at 17.00 GMT
