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 Two cohorts of postdoctoral fellows will be accepted each year. To apply, submit application materials to by January 15, 2016 for the first cycle or by July 15, 2016 for the second cycle. For more information contact:
