Full Text of JOE Listing:
The University of Washington eScience Institute announces a competition for the 2016 Moore/Sloan Data Science and Washington Research Foundation Innovation in Data Science Postdoctoral Fellowships. We seek outstanding interdisciplinary researchers with expertise in the methods of data science and in a physical, life, or social science.
The program recognizes that rapid advances in our ability to acquire and generate data are transforming all fields of discovery from “data-poor” to “data-rich.” A significant bottleneck to discovery is our ability to perform inference over heterogeneous, noisy, and often massive datasets.
Fellows are provided with annual salary support of $65,000 for two years and an additional stipend of $25,000 over the total period of the appointment that can be used for travel, equipment, software, undergraduate research assistants, or other research costs.
A full description of the required application materials can be found at http://escience.washington.edu/postdoctoral-fellowships. Two cohorts of postdoctoral fellows will be accepted each year. To apply, submit application materials to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2016 for the first cycle or by July 15, 2016 for the second cycle. For more information contact: email@example.com.
