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 will receive a $5,000 research fund to support your research (travel, equipment, visitors, etc.).

DDDI postdoc fellows will be expected to

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

Application Process

  • Include links to one or two papers (published or working papers) that show your use of data science in your research
  • An updated CV

Grant process

  • The first round of postdoc fellows will be selected by a DDDI committee from the applications submitted by January 31, 2023
  • Selections will be made in early February, with funds available as soon as the award is made
