Dear colleagues,

Please find below information about our current call for a Digital Scholarship
Fellow at the National Library of Scotland (remote-working options welcome).

Best wishes,

The National Library of Scotland invites applications for The National
Librarian’s Research Fellowship in Digital Scholarship.

This Fellowship supports an exciting opportunity for a three-month period of
research into any aspect of the Library’s data collections available on the Data
Foundry<> 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 data collections, with a
significant focus of the research project on the dataset(s) used.

Projects which align with our 2020-25 strategy, ‘Reaching
People’<>, are
particularly welcome, and projects must engage with at least one of the
Library’s underrepresented audiences.

As a digital fellowship, tenure of the National Librarian’s Digital Scholarship
Research Fellowship does not require residency within the Library: we welcome
applications for remote ’residency’; Fellows should visit the Library to carry
out engagement activities for some of their tenure, however.

More information, including a link to the further particulars, available at:

Applications deadline: 5pm GMT on Monday 20 February 2023.

For further information or an informal discussion, please contact Dr Sarah Ames,
Digital Scholarship Librarian:<>
