A Data Science Central Community
Insight is an intensive, six week postdoctoral training fellowship that bridges the gap between academia and a career in data science. Based in Silicon Valley and New York City, the program enables scientists to learn the industry specific skills needed to work in the growing field of big data at leading companies.
Your Bridge to a Career in Data Science
Are you a PhD candidate or postdoctoral researcher looking to transition into a career in industry? Do you want a career that truly leverages your quantitative experience in a fast-growing, in-demand field that is making a positive impact in the world?
Top companies in many fields are hiring data scientists to help them glean insights from the terabytes of data that they collect everyday. While the amount of data produced and stored is growing exponentially, there is a severe shortage of talent to analyze this data and extract valuable insights from it.
The Insight Data Science Fellows Program is a postdoctoral training fellowship that bridges the gap between academia and data science. Insight is a six week, intensive program that teaches researchers how to apply their existing analytical skills to big data. The program consists of a project-based, industry-driven learning approach designed to train academics in many of the cutting edge data science tools and practices used in industry. Immediately following the program, Fellows interview at leading companies in the San Francisco Bay Area (Silicon Valley Program) or New York, Boston, and Washington D.C. regions (New York Program), where they are likely to receive multiple job offers.
