Data Science Institute postdoctoral programs provide unique opportunities to early-career scientists who wish to advance cutting-edge data science approaches, methods, and applications in research. The core DSI postdoctoral program allows scholars to deepen their knowledge of cutting-edge data science and computing research while developing additional expertise in a specific, applied problem domain.
We also offer postdoctoral positions within our research initiatives, and participate in the Eric and Wendy Schmidt AI in Science Postdoctoral Fellowship, a program of Schmidt Futures.
Our annual Rising Stars in Data Science event celebrates exceptional data scientists at a critical inflection point in their career: the transition to postdoctoral scholar, research scientist, industry research position, or tenure track position.
We also maintain a partnership between the University of Chicago and City Colleges of Chicago to train the next generation of data science educators through our Preceptors in Data Science program.
