Anthony Suen, Data Science Fellow

Open (1) Entreprenuership

Open. Apprentices needed for the fall semester. Please do NOT contact faculty before September 11th (the start of the 4th week of classes)! Enter your application on the web beginning August 16th. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, August 29th at 8 AM.

In this category students will be working with external startups who are looking for students to aid them with their research and operations. While the work will vary, most of the work will be supplementing the team's data scientists and data analysts with their research. The startups will range from local Berkeley startups to international VC funded ventures, all of whom partnered with BIDS. It is very likely that most of the work and the meetings conducted will be remote unless the company’s office is locally based in Berkeley. This opportunity allows students to internally experience innovative startups without the full commitment of long term employment.

Our infrastructure and consulting teams work with a research project for the semester to help them run as effectively as possible to meet their long-term research goals. The consultants aid clients with any structural or technical problems that may be encountered along the way. The infrastructure team will be focused on improving the database and web platforms that run the Discovery Experience Initiative.
