Mozilla Fellowships for Science: Inviting Researchers to Influence the Future of Open Science and Data Sharing Within their Communities

Deadline: 14 May 2017

The Mozilla Fellowships for Science is currently open for applications and invites researchers with a passion for open source and data sharing, already working to shift research practice to be more collaborative, iterative and open. Fellows will spend 10 months starting September 2017 as community catalysts at their institutions, mentoring the next generation of open data practitioners and researchers and building lasting change in the global open science community.

Throughout their fellowship term, chosen fellows will receive training and support from Mozilla to hone their skills around open source, data sharing, open science policy and licensing. They will also craft code, curriculum and other learning resources that help their local communities learn open data practices, and teach their institutional peers.

Benefits

Fellows will receive:

  • a stipend of $60,000 USD, paid in 10 monthly installments
  • a one-time health insurance supplement for Fellows and their families, ranging from $3,500 for single Fellows to $7,000 for a couple with two or more children
  • a one-time childcare allotment of up to $6,000 for families with children
  • an allowance of up to $3,000 towards the purchase of laptop computer, digital cameras, recorders and computer software; fees for continuing studies or other courses, research fees or payments, to the extent such purchases and fees are related to the fellowship
  • coverage in full for all approved fellowship trips – domestic and international
