From the Open Knowledge Foundation:
The OKFN is delighted to announce the launch of the Panton Fellowships!
Funded by the Open Society Institute, two Panton Fellowships will be awarded to scientists who actively promote open data in science.
The Fellowships are open to all, and would particularly suit graduate students and early-stage career scientists. Fellows will have the freedom to undertake a range of activities, which should ideally complement their existing work. Panton Fellows may wish to explore solutions for making data open, facilitate discussion, and catalyse the open science community.
Fellows will receive £8k p.a. Prospective applicants should send a CV and covering letter to jobs[@]okfn.org by Friday 24th February.
Full details can be found at [Panton Principles](http://pantonprinciples.org/panton-fellowships/). You can also see our [blog post](http://blog.okfn.org/2012/01/25/panton-fellowships-apply-now/).
Please do feel free to circulate these details to interested individuals and appropriate mailing lists!
