Please RSVP by Monday, October 1, 2018 to join BGS for an Information Session and Q&A with Morgan Taylor, BGS (NGG) alumna and Insight Data Science’s Health Data Program Director in Boston. Lunch will be served.
Scientists and engineers from diverse fields, including physics, astronomy, computational biology, neuroscience, math, statistics, and computer science, are playing key roles in transforming the way companies and public institutions work with data to impact our daily lives. The Insight Data Science Fellows Program is an intensive, seven week postdoctoral training fellowship that bridges the gap between academic research and a career in data science. Based in Silicon Valley, New York, Boston, Seattle, and Toronto, the program enables scientists to learn the industry-specific skills through a project-based, industry-driven learning approach designed to train academics in many of the cutting edge data science tools and practices used in industry.
There are now over 1500 Insight alumni working as data scientists and data engineers on top data-driven teams including Facebook, the New York Times, Netflix, Twitter, Bloomberg, Apple, LinkedIn, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Viacom, Enigma, Jet.com, and NBC, as well as at various well-funded startups.
This event will: (1) provide a high-level overview of data science in the health and technology industries and (2) describe the Insight Fellows Program, which has an October 22 application deadline for the January 2019 session. The session will include time for Q&A, as well as advice for those interested in transitioning to careers in data science and data engineering. Learn more at insightdatascience.com
