UC San Diego Information Theory and Applications Center


UCSD announces an exciting new initiative, the Data Science Postdoctoral Fellowship, aimed at preparing outstanding researchers for academic careers in the field of Data Science.

Extending far beyond a traditional postdoctoral program, the Data Science Fellows will enjoy the freedom to interact and collaborate with any of UCSD's distinguished faculty. They will be affiliated with the CSE or ECE Departments where they will teach one data science related class per year, and will be given a research budget and a faculty-type office.

The program is co-sponsored by UCSD's CSE and ECE departments, the Interdisciplinary Qualcomm Institute, and the Information Theory and Applications Center. Of the Center's nine past postdocs, seven currently hold academic positions at major universities worldwide.

Five positions are available and exceptional, self-motivated candidates with outstanding research records are encouraged to apply. Applications will be reviewed starting March 21st.
