The Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS) is seeking applications for its Michigan Data Science Fellows (DS Fellows) Program. This two-year program provides outstanding early-career researchers with intensive data science experience as they ready themselves for independent research and faculty positions.
MIDAS is dedicated to building a data science research community and external partnerships, advancing innovative and responsible data science, and translating research outcomes to positive societal impact. The DS Fellows Program accepts early-career researchers who have a strong track record of research in their respective fields and who plan to acquire additional skills in data science and AI, broadly construed, with a focus on either methodology or applications (including societal impact). Fellows will be expected to work at the boundaries between data science methods and domain sciences in an intellectually vibrant environment, and build interdisciplinary relationships with other Fellows and over 460 MIDAS affiliate faculty. They are expected to be strong candidates for university faculty and other research positions when they leave the program.
