Michael has worked as a data scientist (Foursquare), quant (D.E. Shaw, J.P. Morgan), and a rocket scientist (NASA). He did his PhD at Princeton as a Hertz fellow and read Part III Maths at Cambridge as a Marshall Scholar.
At Foursquare, Michael discovered that his favorite part of the job was teaching and mentoring smart people about data science. He decided to build a startup that let him focus on what he really loves.
The Data Incubator is an intensive six-week fellowship that prepares the best science and engineering PhDs to work as data scientists and quants. It identifies fellows who already have the 90% difficult-to-learn skills and equips them with the last 10%: the tools and technology stack that make them self-sufficient, productive contributors. The program is free for fellows. Employers only pay a tuition fee if they successfully hire. Fellows have the option to participate in the program either in person in NYC or electronically.
Don’t delay! It is highly recommended to apply before the early deadline of October 7, 2014.
