UCSD has several Postdoctoral Fellowship, aimed at preparing outstanding researchers for academic and leadership careers in Data Science.

Extending far beyond traditional postdoctoral programs, our Data Science Fellows enjoy the freedom to collaborate and conduct first-rate research with any of UCSD's distinguished faculty. They receive an affiliation at the CSE or ECE Department, where they teach one data-science related class per year, and will be given a research budget and a faculty-type office.

The program is co-sponsored by UCSD's CSE and ECE departments, the Interdisciplinary Qualcomm Institute, the newly formed Halicioglu Data Science Institute, and the Information Theory and Applications Center. Of the program’s 17 past participants, 12 currently hold academic positions at major universities worldwide, and others are at leading technology companies.

Five positions are available and exceptional, self-motivated candidates with outstanding research records are encouraged to . Applications will be reviewed starting April 15th.
