Hi all,

I'm excited to announce, on behalf of the Numfocus board, that applications
for the
2014 John Hunter Technology Fellowship are now being accepted. This is the
fellowship Numfocus is able to offer, which we see as a significant

The John Hunter Technology Fellowship aims to bridge the gap between
academia and real-world, open-source scientific computing projects by
a capstone experience for individuals coming from a scientific, engineering
mathematics background.

The program consists of a 6 month project-based training program
for postdoctoral scientists or senior graduate students. Fellows work on
scientific computing open source projects under the guidance of mentors who
leading scientists and software engineers. The aim of the Fellowship is to
enable Fellows to develop the skills needed to contribute to cutting-edge
source software projects while at the same time advancing or supporting the
research program they and their mentor are involved in.

While proposals in any area of science and engineering are welcome, the
following areas are encouraged in particular:

  - Accessible and reproducible computing
  - Enabling technology for open access publishing
  - Infrastructural technology supporting open-source scientific software
  - Core open-source projects promoted by NumFOCUS

Eligible applicants are postdoctoral scientists or senior PhD students,
or have equivalent experience in physics, mathematics, engineering,
or a related science. The program is open to applicants from any nationality
and can be performed at any university or institute world-wide (US export
laws permitting).

All applications are due May 15, 2014 by 11:59 p.m. Central Standard Time.
