The School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University 
Bloomington seeks to recruit an exceptional doctoral student with 
interest in issues related to scholarly communication for the IDEASc 
fellowship program, funded by the Institute for Museum and Library 
Services (IMLS) and hosted by the Department of Information and Library 
Science (ILS) and the University Libraries at Indiana University 
Bloomington (IUB). IDEASc – Integrated Doctoral Education with 
Application to Scholarly Communication – is a fellowship program 
designed to further scholarship and practice in the area of scholarly 
communication by integrating practical experience in the library with 
the research and classroom experiences that comprise the traditional 
education of doctoral students. The Fellow will be provided with 
intensive mentoring, wide-ranging opportunities to work and conduct 
research in scholarly communication, and comprehensive training in 
pedagogy, curricular development, and in-class instruction. Our efforts 
are motivated by an awareness of the complex transformations of library 
roles in the scholarly communication environment and the increasing need 
to educate future LIS faculty with an integrated understanding of 
research and practice to meet the needs of future MLS students.

The Fellow will receive a stipend of $23,000, health insurance, tuition, 
travel assistance, and funding for publication in an open access journal 
for three consecutive years as part of this program. The Fellow will 
also have an opportunity to work in the library with experienced and 
innovative librarians and with leading faculty studying the diverse 
range of issues related to scholarly communication. Potential topics of 
interest include, but are not limited to, digital libraries, 
scientometrics, intellectual property, metadata, social media metrics, 
university presses, data curation, digital humanities, scholarly 
publishing, institutional repositories, and copyright. Additional 
information can be found on the project website:

Indiana University Bloomington is particularly well-situated to support 
this proposal given its campus-wide focus on issues of scholarly 
communication as well as the strengths of both the Indiana University 
Bloomington Libraries and the Department of Information and Library 
Science in this domain. This is a time of systemic change in how 
institutions create, sustain, and provide access to information, and 
libraries and LIS professionals are uniquely situated to influence the 
direction of this change. The project will graduate doctoral students 
who are not only familiar with issues of scholarly communication but 
will also, as leaders in the field, understand scholarly communication 
from the varying perspectives of practice, education, and research.

Applicants will need to apply to and meet the requirements for the ILS 
Ph.D. program. Information on the Ph.D. application process can be found 
on the departmental website (http://ils.indiana.edu/phd/). Students will 
additionally be asked to send their personal statement, writing sample, 
and CV/resume directly to Dr. Cassidy R. Sugimoto (sugimoto [at] 
indiana.edu <http://indiana.edu>). *Applications should be received by 
February 1, 2016 for full consideration.*
