Dear PhD Students (and supervisors),

The LSSTC Data Science Fellowship Program (DSFP) is a two-year training 
program, designed to teach astronomy students essential skills for 
dealing with big data from LSST. The program (including travel) is 
funded by the LSST Corporation through its Enabling Science initiative. 
This program is open to PhD students based in Australia.

LSSTC Data Science Fellows learn a wide range of essential skills: the 
basics of managing and building code, statistics, machine learning, 
scalable programing, data management, image processing, visualization, 
and communication.

The DSFP consists of six, one-week schools over a two-year period (three 
per year), allowing students ample time to attain mastery of these 
skills. On top of teaching the students the skills they need for modern 
survey astronomy, they also aim to create a collaborative, supportive 
learning environment, and work to empower the students to teach the 
skills they learn to others. They strive to create an inclusive program, 
and particularly encourage applications from students from traditionally 
underrepresented groups in astronomy.

If you are interested in applying the deadline is August 22nd - visit 
the _LSSTC Data Science Fellowship 
website<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/jTkhCvl0PoCKw3RMTQsEYB?domain=astrodatascience.org>_ to learn more!

Cheers, Sarah
