The DSC Awards Funding for 15 New Data Science Positions
The DSC aims to enhance the university’s research by developing, sharing and applying data science methods and technologies.
Through its Accelerate Programme, the DSC will support faculties as they pursue data driven research and stimulate the hiring of data scientists and engineers. The programme is not only intended to facilitate knowledge exchange throughout the university, but also incentivise the integration of these roles into existing research activity.
Six faculties were awarded funding via the Accelerate Programme, 16 proposals across the following faculties were awarded funding to help fund a data scientist or engineer:
- Amsterdam UMC
- Faculty of Law
- Faculty of Economics and Business
- Faculty of Humanities
- Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences
- Faculty of Science
The successful proposals will now start the recruitment process. These data scientists and engineers will interact weekly at the UvA Library where the DSC is based. This will stimulate knowledge sharing to strengthen data driven research across the university.
