The Data Science Institute has launched a new post-doctoral exchange program in data science with the Institute of Data Science at the National University of Singapore (NUS).
The exchange program, made possible with the majority of funding from Provincial Health Services Authority and Mitacs, will support UBC data science post-doctoral fellows to conduct research in NUS for at least one year. A similar arrangement would allow NUS post-doctoral fellows to come to UBC. The primary objective is to provide richer cultural experience and more diverse training for post-doctoral fellows in both institutes. The program will begin in the fall of 2023.
We welcome the following two categories of applicants:
- Research fellows who are currently in their post-doctoral studies at NUS or at UBC. The applicants who fall under this category would apply for their second post-doc projects at the other university.
- PhD graduates who have not started their first post-doctoral project in their home university but wish to start a project at the other university.
The funding period is for 12 months, given satisfactory probation. Individual PIs may extend the funding period based on the availability of their own funds.
Each funded project will be given $80k Canadian dollars for one year towards the stipend of the post-doctoral fellow. Any other financial commitments are the responsibility of the project PI.
The deadline for this application has closed for the year. Please check back for the 2024 application.
