This Fellowship supports a three-month period of research into of any aspect of the National Library of Scotland's data collections, available on the Library's data site, the Data Foundry.
Using data science or other digital research methods or techniques, the Digital Scholarship Research Fellow is expected to undertake research for a significant piece of publishable work using one or more of the Library's data collections.
Occupation of the Fellowship does not require residency within the Library, we welcome applications for 'remote residency'. Fellows with remote residency remain in regular contact with the Library throughout the three-month period and offer digital updates for staff and external audiences. They also visit the Library during the fellowship, to carry out engagement activities such as presenting findings and delivering talks for the Library's public and internal events programmes.
The Fellowship is supported by the National Librarian’s Innovation Fund. It 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.
