Data Sciences Institute (DSI) Postdoctoral Fellowships Info Session

Event Type:
Tue Nov 30, 2021 at 9:30 AM to 10:15 AM

The Data Sciences Institute (DSI) is a central hub and incubator for data science research, training, and partnerships at the University of Toronto. Its goal is to accelerate the impact of data sciences across disciplines to address pressing societal questions and to drive positive social change. DSI is focused on training the next generation of data science scholars.

The DSI Postdoctoral Fellowships are designed to support multi/interdisciplinary training and collaborative research in data sciences that include faculty from the University of Toronto and funding partners institutions. Currently, DSI Partner institutions are: Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, University Health Network, and The Hospital For Sick Children.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to attend the upcoming  Postdoctoral Fellowship Info Session, hosted by Professor Laura Rosella, DSI Associate Director, Education & Training. This session will cover information about the DSI, and the overall Postdoctoral Fellowship application process. The session will include time for Q&A. We also welcome any questions you may have in advance. 

To be considered for the Fellowship, applicants must pursue a research project that has a data sciences focus, through the development of novel methodology or the innovative application of existing approaches, to address major societal issues. Applicants must identify at least two faculty members from complementary disciplinary backgrounds to serve as co-supervisors, who together can supervise the different multidisciplinary aspects of the research project.
