Application for Data Science Initiative Affiliates: Graduate students and Postdocs
The Data Science Initiative (DSI) is building a campus community of researchers interested in the exciting area of Data Science, both applications and methods. Graduate students and postdocs interested in developing and/or applying data science methods to research problems in different fields can apply to be affiliated with the DSI. Affiliates have access to the DSI suite in Shields library, which includes desk space, lounge areas, conference rooms, a classroom, and a kitchen area. The space is also furnished throughout with whiteboards and LCD screens and is the campus hub for data science resources. In addition to the physical space, affiliates will also be part of the burgeoning community of data scientists on campus. The community discusses new data science developments, brainstorms about projects, forms new collaborations, and helps with each others problems. To this end, affiliates are expected to actively participate in developing a multidisciplinary community by spending time in the DSI space, attending regular meetings, seminars, and events. This is a great opportunity to strengthen your Data Science knowledge and skills, network, get input on your research, and collaborate in a multi-disciplinary environment. Active affiliates are eligible to apply for competitive GSR positions, research/travel grants, and other select opportunities through the DSI. To apply to the affiliate program, please fill out the form below and submit.
