Graduate Opportunities

Posted August 16, 2019 

The Center for Statistics and Machine Learning’s DataX Fund supports the hiring of six data scientists who will create and improve data-analysis software to operate at large scale, leading to faster discovery, wider impact and greater continuity.

These data scientists will work in faculty-led, collaborative, multidisciplinary environments, and leverage their skills to advance the progress of data-driven scientific discovery. Three research areas are of particular interest:

  • Catalysis – led by the Department of Chemistry, in collaboration with other departments including Chemical Engineering, Molecular Biology, and Computer Science.
  • Biomedical Data Science – led by the Department of Computer Science, in collaboration with the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, Princeton Neuroscience Institute, and additional engineering departments.
  • Technology Policy – led by the Center for Information Technology Policy.

Prior expertise in the above areas is not required -- the data scientists will be mentored in the relevant research area. They will have access to Princeton’s first-class resources and have the opportunity to co-author academic publications.

 These are 3-year appointments offering a very competitive salary and excellent opportunities for growth and future career opportunities. The positions are part of the Schmidt DataX project, an initiative made possible by a major gift from Schmidt Futures.

Questions?  Feel free to contact our Project Manager, Ellen DiPippo if you have any questions
                     about the position or process.

The John Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD

Post-Doctoral Fellowship Opportunity in Clinical Chemistry

I am hoping to make information available to the graduate students in your department about an opportunity at Johns Hopkins University School Of Medicine for post-doctoral training in the field of Clinical Chemistry. The post-doctoral fellowship is clinically-geared and focuses on both clinical laboratory service and translational research projects.  In recent years, successful fellows have had a strong, yet diverse background in physical and biological sciences, including, but not limited to, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, and biomedical engineering. 

 The application process begins the September prior to the start of the fellowship (July 1), so the group we most want to reach is students that are 1-2 years from completing their dissertation and defense.
