Call for Applications: BIDS Data Science Fellows Program—Spring 2015

February 18, 2015

We are excited to invite applications for our next cohort in the BIDS Data Science Fellow Program. 

Successful applicants will join our current cohort of fellows in helping make data analysis easier in the research sciences. BIDS data science fellows are postdoctoral scholars, graduate student researchers, or staff with excellent credentials in their fields as well as strong interests in advancing data-analysis approaches with a community of like-minded individuals from across campus. 

In this call, we are currently seeking applicants in two different categories:

  • Joint campus appointment 
  • Graduate student researcher appointment

A small number of full-time postdoc positions will also be available. The recruitment process for these positions will be launched in early March 2015.

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-analysis methods and inquiry, expanding and building new software and analytics tools, sharing best practices, and more. 

Your data does not have to be “big data” for you to be eligible for the program. If you find your data-related problems to be at all unique and challenging, we welcome you to work with us. In particular, we are interested in applications from cross-disciplinary groups and from individuals exploring topics that may broaden the research diversity of our community (e.g., genetics, economics, and the Internet of Things).
