Hi all,

** The application deadline for the Panton Fellowships is 24th February.
Visit the Panton Principles
website<http://pantonprinciples.org/panton-fellowships/>for details **

Panton Fellowships offer *£8,000 *to scientists who promote open data in
science. Fellowships can be held whilst you are working or studying, and
should supplement your current funding.

Fellowships last for one year. The scheme is designed to be flexible, and
there is scope for Fellows to carry out a range of activities. Fellows may
wish to:

* Initiate discussion about the role and value of openness,
* Explore practical solutions for making data open
* Catalyse the scientific community and for push change.

Panton Fellowships are open to all, and are particularly suited to graduate
students and early-stage career stage scientists. The scheme is overseen by
a distinguished Advisory Board of scientists and open data advocates.

Panton Fellowships are not intended to cover full economic costs, and are
not full-time positions. Fellows should continue to work and/or study at
their current institution for the duration of the Fellowship. You should
ensure that you have permission from employers/funders before applying.

Applicants should send a CV and covering letter to jobs [@] okfn.org by
*24th February*. In your covering letter, you should explain as a Panton
Fellow, what you would do, make or change.

To be eligible, applicants must have the relevant rights to work in the UK,
and should reasonably expect to be working and/or studying in the UK until
March 2013.

See the Panton Principles
website<http://pantonprinciples.org/panton-fellowships/>for full
details. If you have any questions, please contact laura.newman

Please circulate this email to any relevant mailing lists, and to anyone
who may be interested.
