For Researchers and Faculty

Data science at Brown can be found in most departments. DSI offers a number of ways for faculty and researchers to find community, collaborators, or support. Please reach out with questions or suggestions! 

Network with colleagues

  • Affiliate with DSI: Contact us if you would like to be a member of our Affiliated Faculty
  • Share your research: Give a talk in our seminar series; or reach out to us with other networking ideas
  • Host a speaker: DSI can sponsor data-related talks for an interdisciplinary audience
  • Start a reading group: DSI can offer space and help with organization and publicity

Work with data science students

  • Undergraduate Data Science Fellows work with faculty partners on data science-related curricular innovations (see some examples here and here)
  • Data science master's students are required to do an applied data science practicum. One way for them to fulfill this requirement is to work on campus as a research assistant. A small number of DSI student-research stipends are also available for faculty with no other funding.

Attend workshops or train others

  • Participate in the Data Science Curriculum Design Institute
  • Sign up for our newsletter to be informed of training opportunities in data science tools and methods
  • Help us centralize training opportunities: let us know about any related training in your department
  • Contact us if you would like to offer workshops or training for colleagues and students
