I’m one of the Program Co-Directors for a new Data Science Health Innovation Fellowship organized by UCSF, UC Berkeley, and Janssen R&D. We are currently recruiting the first cohort of candidates and are trying to publicize this initiative as broadly as possible among relevant communities. Below is a call for applications.

As you can see, the application deadline is July 29th, approaching rapidly, but it would be great to get the word out to your readers in case anyone is interested in applying.

And here it is:

The University of California Berkeley (UC Berkeley) and University of California San Francisco (UCSF) are currently soliciting applications for outstanding data scientists to join a new, groundbreaking data science health innovation fellowship program.

The new Data Science Health Innovation Fellowship Program will be run by the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS) at UC Berkeley and the Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute (BCHSI) at UCSF, with support from Janssen. Mentors from all three institutions will provide guidance in developing and implementing research projects.

Fellows will be provided with 2 years of generous financial support to develop and execute innovative, data-driven research projects in areas of unmet patient needs. Fellows will have access to computer science, engineering, and statistics expertise and technology innovation at UC Berkeley; clinical expertise and data at UCSF; and pharmaceutical industry and translational expertise from Janssen Research & Development.

Please contact the Program Co-Directors, Ben Rubin and Maryam Vareth, if you have any questions or would like to discuss the program in more detail.

Looks like fun.
