Call for Researcher in Residence (KB, The Hague) – deadline 30 September 2022

The KB, National Library of the Netherlands is seeking proposals for its fully paid Researcher-in-Residence program in 2023. This program offers a unique chance for early career researchers of all disciplines to work in the library with the Digital Scholarship team and KB data. In return, the KB learns how researchers use the data of the KB, what kinds of possibilities it offers and how to improve their services.

The Researcher-in-Residence project will be carried out at the Research department of the KB and there will be two placements in 2023. The researcher will be assisted by one of KB’s research software engineers, an advisor, and collection and data specialists. The output of the project will be incorporated in the experimental platform of the KB, the KB Lab and is ideally beneficial for a larger (scholarly) community. The KB also accepts applications for a remote residency and can offer short-term fixed contracts for researchers currently not affiliated with a university or research institute.

Proposals should be submitted before 30 September 2022.
