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.
