Sponsors (partial list)

Dr. Michael Li, Executive Director

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.

  • Leverage your PhD - Training that links your analytical skills to job opportunities
  • Employer paid scholarships - Tuition is free for admitted fellows
  • Mentorship from hiring firms - Learn from senior data scientists at our hiring companies and build your professional network
  • Jumpstart your career - Opportunities with the most innovative employers in technology, healthcare, and finance with $100K - $200K starting compensation
  • Smart passionate PhD Fellows - Make the transition from academia with a selective peer group excited to learn and collaborate
  • Build a portfolio project - Showcase your knowledge by applying the tools that employers value to proprietary industry data


Don’t delay! It is highly recommended to apply before the early deadline of October 7, 2014.
