Application Process

DDDI invites all post-doctoral fellows in the School of Arts & Sciences who are developing or using data science methods to apply to be a Data Science Fellow. If data science is a significant part of your research and you are interested in cross-disciplinary interactions, apply to become a Fellow. You will join an exciting group of postdocs spanning the social and natural sciences, will have weekly interactions with faculty and visitors, and a research fund (up to $5000 total) for one year to support your research (travel, equipment, visitors, etc.). Stipend is subject for renewal.

Postdoc fellows will be expected to:

  • Regularly attend and contribute to our weekly postdoc meetings
  • Participate in DDDI events and activities when possible
  • Contribute a tutorial or research presentation to DDDI (once per semester)

  • An updated CV
  • A statement from your postdoc advisor endorsing your participation in the DDDI fellows program (a one sentence acknowledgement is sufficient)
