Careers in Data Science

David Drummond, Director of Data Engineering at Insight Data Science will be talking about his transition from academia to the fields of data science and data engineering. He will also be leading a discussion on careers in data science, health data science, and data engineering, and steps you can take towards these career paths. Top companies are hiring data scientists and engineers to help find insights in the petabytes of data that they collect every day. Scientists and engineers from diverse fields, including computational biology, neuroscience, math, and statistics are playing key roles in transforming the way of working with data to impact our daily lives.

The Insight Fellows Program is a training fellowship designed to bridge the gap between academia and a career in data science or data engineering. Insight provides seven-week, full-time, training fellowships in Silicon Valley, New York and Boston. They offer a full tuition scholarship, dedicated office space, and project-based learning under the guidance of top industry mentors. Over 600 Insight alumni are now working at Facebook, Apple, LinkedIn, Twitter, Reddit, Netflix, NBC, MTV, Khan Academy, Biogen and other top companies.

In this info session, we will provide a high-level overview of data science and engineering in industry and describe the Insight Fellows Program. The Program is open to individuals from all subjects working on quantitative data analysis (our Data Science and Health Data Science Programs have a PhD requirement). The session will also include time for Q&A. Learn more at:
