Training Programs

Insight Data Science Fellows – The Insight Data Science Fellows Program aims to give PhDs the hands-on training and experience they need to become data science professionals. Their 6 week, tuition-free program introduces selected applicants to the profession of data science by teaching them the basics, putting them into close contact with data science professionals from major Bay Area tech companies and mentoring data science projects that act as the fellow’s professional portfolio. Boasting a professional placement rate of 100%, the Insight Data Science Fellows program should be considered the gold standard of PhD to industry training and placement programs.

sciphdSciPhD provides training for scientists who want to transition from academia to non-academic careers. Various workshops, boot camps and certificate programs are designed to offer resources and hands-on training to identify and develop skills in communication, leadership, negotiation, team building, networking, and project management. Workshops introduce job opportunities in industry, and a critical evaluation of students’ skills, all to translate “operational competencies” to SciPhD’s 24 core competencies, valued by hiring companies. Additionally, a focus on resume and interview preparation, as well as networking helps participants to design an individual career action plan. Numerous universities, medical schools, science academies and societies in the US and abroad have hosted SciPhD training programs.
