Fellowships in Data Curation for the Sciences and Social Sciences

These two-year fellowships, which are partially supported by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, will provide recent Ph.D.s with professional development, education, and training opportunities in software and data curation for the sciences and social sciences.
