The Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS) invites applications for our Data Science Fellows Program.
Successful applicants will join our current cohort of fellows, building a community of postdoctoral scholars, graduate student researchers, and research staff with excellent credentials in their fields as well as a strong interest in advancing data science and data-intensive research across the campus and beyond.
All projects that leverage, innovate, and advance both data-intensive research practices and methodologies are welcome, and interdisciplinary collaborations are particularly encouraged at BIDS. Dealing with “big data” is not a requirement to become a Fellow. We take a broad view of data science and welcome candidates from any research focus—from digital humanities and psychology to statistics and computer science—who are interested in pushing the frontiers of data-intensive research in their own field and in cross-disciplinary collaborations. If you find your data-related problems to be unique and challenging, we welcome you to apply to work with us.
Each Data Science Fellow will become part of and contribute to a growing ecosystem that brings together faculty, postdoctoral researchers, students, staff, and alumni to form a strong network that assists researchers in advancing data-analytic methods and inquiry, expanding and building new software and analytics tools, sharing best practices, and more. Information on our current working groups and projects can be found at bids.berkeley.edu/research.
