Inaugural MCDS Doctoral Academy open for applications
The inaugural Melbourne Centre for Data Science Doctoral Academy will commence in 2021.
The MCDS Doctoral Academy aims to bring together a campus wide multi-disciplinary cohort of PhD students (MCDS Doctoral Academy Fellows) to share their research, domain challenges and thoughts around the use, implementation and application of data science in their fields.
The Academy will support the Fellows through peer-learning opportunities, masterclasses, workshops, discussions, opportunities for presentations and more. Such a mixed environment will expose students to different disciplinary perspectives and stimulate the development of new approaches to the ways in which data science is incorporated in research.
The program is ideal for students who:
- Enjoy engaging in cross-disciplinary research skills development and desire to build practical skills
- Seek to explore ways that data science methodologies can be used and advanced within their research
- Appreciate building a community of young researchers who consider data science matters in their field at the University of Melbourne
