Hi All,

This thoroughly-recommended opportunity is open to PhD students in Australia and all travel costs would be covered by the program.

Cheers, Sarah

Subject: [SciColl] Applications open for the LSSTC Data Science Fellowship Program

(Please distribute to your colleagues – application deadline is June 14, 2019)

We are pleased to announce that the LSSTC Data Science Fellowship Program is now accepting applications for new students! You can learn more at astrodatascience.org<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/uWFoCP7yOZtEQgLQTz82de?domain=astrodatascience.org>, and apply directly using this form: https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/tvo0CQnzP0tj7Vw7tP98CA?domain=forms.gle

The LSSTC Data Science Fellowship Program (DSFP) is a supplement to graduate education in astronomy-related fields (e.g. astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology, planetary science, etc.), intended to teach students essential skills for dealing with big data. You don't need to know anything about data science to apply, you just need to be excited to learn!

The DSFP consists of three, one-week schools per year over a two year period. On top of teaching our students the skills they need for modern survey astronomy, we also aim to create a collaborative, supportive learning environment, and work to empower our students to teach the skills they learn to others. We strive to create an inclusive program, and particularly encourage applications from students from underrepresented groups in astronomy.

Please visit astrodatascience.org<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/uWFoCP7yOZtEQgLQTz82de?domain=astrodatascience.org> and check out our FAQ<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/YFwNCROAQotqNY3NhP0R4O?domain=astrodatascience.org> to learn more!
