The Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI) has several postdoctoral fellowship openings aimed at preparing outstanding researchers for academic and leadership careers in Data Science.

Extending far beyond traditional postdoctoral programs, these Data Science Postdoctoral Fellows will enjoy the freedom to collaborate and conduct first-rate research with any of UCSD's distinguished researchers. HDSI Postdoctoral Fellows will receive an affiliation with HDSI and will be given a research budget and faculty-type office. Fellows may have the option to teach one or two data-science related classes during their postdoc appointment.

This program is sponsored by the newly formed Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute at UC San Diego. The mission of HDSI is to explore the scientific foundations for the new field of data science. This includes developing the theory, methods, and tools that will enable us to understand the nature of modern digital data, and exploring the intersections between this new field and existing disciplines of human enquiry. A key aspect of the Institute’s work will be contributing to the training and education of the next generation of leaders in Data Science.
