Insight is an intensive, six week postdoctoral training fellowship that bridges the gap between  academia and a career in data science. Based in  Silicon Valley, the program enables scientists to  learn the industry specific skills needed to work  in the growing field of big data at leading  technology companies.

Are you a PhD candidate or postdoctoral researcher looking to transition into  a career in industry? Do you want a career that truly leverages your quantitative  experience in a fast-growing, in-demand field that is making a positive impact in  the world?
Silicon Valley technology companies are hiring data scientists to help them  glean insights from the terabytes of data that they collect everyday. While the  amount of data produced and stored is growing exponentially, there is a severe  shortage of top talent to analyze this data and extract valuable insights from it.
The Insight Data Science Fellows Program is a new postdoctoral training  fellowship that bridges the gap between academia and data science. Insight is a  six week, intensive program based in Mountain View, California that teaches  researchers how to apply their existing analytical skills to big data. The program  consists of project-based, industry-driven learning approach designed to train  you in many of the cutting edge data science tools and practices used in industry.
Immediately following the program, Fellows interview at top Silicon Valley  technology companies and are likely to receive multiple job offers.
