The UC Davis Data Science Initiative is seeking a full-time Data Scientist to join our team. The Data Scientist will support academic research by designing and implementing practical solutions to data science challenges.

This position involves:

-        Working on numerous, diverse cutting-edge collaborative research projects

-        Providing data science advice and services/support for other projects and researchers

-        Offering workshops to train students, staff, and faculty in data science methods and technologies

-        Developing general, reusable data science infrastructure, methods, software and tools.

The Data Scientist will apply statistical and machine learning methods and other data science techniques to real-world problems to aid data-enabled, multi-disciplinary research. Our Data Scientists are expected to continually learn, share, and problem solve while working with researchers from across the university.

 

About the DSI 

The UC Davis Data Science Initiative (DSI) was founded to promote and support research and training in data-driven discovery across all colleges, schools and disciplines at UC Davis. We facilitate data-enabled research and training at the frontiers of scientific, engineering, social and humanities disciplines. A highly interdisciplinary, cross-university entity, the DSI is housed in the main university Library and serves as a hub for a community of researchers and students from many domains interested in data science and pushing the envelope of research in the digital age. The DSI coordinates data-science training activities, provides consulting and collaborative services for research projects, and conducts novel research in data science. We run training workshops on fundamental and intermediate to advanced data science topics. We run problem-solving “un-seminars”, reading groups, and generally foster community. Our research and training activities span the entire research data pipeline, from data acquisition, management, cleaning, transformation, visualization, and modeling to dissemination/publication and high-performance computing, and involve aspects of data governance, security, privacy and ethics. The DSI is committed to fostering an inclusive environment to promote all members of the university community, including faculty, students and staff from a variety of domains, backgrounds, cultures and personal experiences. For more information, see https://www.ucdavis.edu and http://dsi.ucdavis.edu.
