Interested in building an open science training program for the Arctic? The Arctic Data Center at NCEAS is looking for the right person to lead our training and outreach activities. Training activities center around techniques and approaches towards open science and data-driven synthesis, including topical foci on research computing, communication, collaboration, and other aspects of data science that support scientific synthesis. Outreach activities focus on increasing awareness of the Arctic Data Center, supporting users and soliciting feedback and building a community of practice around the center. For more information, and to apply, see the full job description.

Data Science Fellows Program

The Arctic Data Center is seeking applications for the 2017/2018 Data Science Fellows program. We offer two six-month sessions starting in early January and July, respectively. Data Science Fellows will be in residence at NCEAS for one or both of the sessions, and will work closely with data and informatics teams to solve data, analysis, and software issues relating to environmental science. Fellows will analyze, document, and archive important ecological, physical, chemical, and social science data from research projects focused on environmental issues in Alaska and the Arctic. This practicum-style program gives fellows the opportunity to gain practical knowledge and skills needed to manage national-scale data repositories.
