CLIR Postdoctoral Fellows work on projects that forge and strengthen connections among library collections, educational technologies, and current research. Host institutions benefit from fellows’ field-specific expertise by gaining insights into their collections’ potential uses and users, scholarly information behaviors, and current teaching and learning practices.

The Postdoctoral Fellowship Program currently consists of four tracks. Each has slightly different requirements and parameters, relating to eligible fields of study, funding, and terms of appointment.
