Summer Data Science Fellowship Opportunity

Program: The Data Incubator is an intensive 8 week fellowship that prepares masters students, PhDs, and postdocs in STEM and social science fields seeking industry careers as data scientists. The program is free for Fellows and supported by sponsorships from hundreds of employers across multiple industries. In response to the overwhelming interest in our earlier sessions, we will be holding another fellowship.

Who Should Apply: Anyone who has already obtained a masters or PhD degree or who is within one year of graduating with a masters or PhD is welcome to apply. Applications from international students are welcome. Everyone else is encouraged to sign-up for a future session.

Locations: In addition to the below in-person locations, we will have a remote online session:

  • New York City
  • San Francisco Bay Area
  • Boston
  • Washington, DC.

Dates: All sections will be from 2019-06-24 to 2019-08-16.

in2scienceUK seeking placement hosts

Calling all PhD students and researchers,

Want to make a difference and support a young person from disadvantaged backgrounds gain an insight into research? Sign up to support us here

in2scienceUK empowers students (year 12s) from low-income backgrounds to achieve their potential and progress to STEM research intensive degrees. We have over 2000 student sign up each year and we are looking for volunteers to get involved and host a student for 1 to 2 weeks during the summer.

How it works:

  • You’ll host a student whom we’ve selected and interviewed for you for one to two weeks at your place of work.
  • You’ll show them your work, introduce them to colleagues and speak to them about your career path.
  • Each student will receive a travel and lunch bursary and pre-placement skills day workshop

In addition:

  • This activity counts as evidence of public engagement.
  • Being enriched personally and professionally: starting to look at things from a fresh point of view, a different perspective and meet a different generation
  • You will have the invaluable opportunity to meet young people, share your experience and make a real difference

in2scienceUK is currently looking for more volunteers. Please consider hosting a student in your group and making a difference to students from low-income backgrounds. Sign up here.
