We’ve just finished the second round of appointments for the Panton Fellowships, and this year we have three Fellows joining us: Rosie Graves (UK), Peter Kraker (Austria), and Sam Moore (UK). Peter will be joining us at OKCon this year, so please come and find him and introduce yourself!
We had some really excellent applications this year, so we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped us spread the word.
The Panton Fellowships are year-long awards with a small stipend and additional travel budget. They are typically awarded to early career researchers (although those with other backgrounds are very welcome to apply), who submit proposals that we think will be really beneficial to promote open science, open data in science, and the Panton Principles.
We’ve expanded from last year’s two Fellows, who were both based in the UK, so we are really excited to see what they manage to do! We’re aware that this year’s Fellows are going to have a tough job living up to the amazing work carried out by our inaugural Fellows, Ross Mounce and Sophie Kershaw, however this lot certainly have the potential to do so!
Each of the Fellows will be writing a short introductory post about themselves, their thoughts and plans for the year. We also hope they will be posting semi regular updates about their activities, so sign up to the open science working group mailing list to be kept up to date!
