The Data Science Initiative at Brown University ( seeks applications for one-year renewable postdoctoral fellowship positions in the area of data science with a start date of July 1, 2023 (flexible). 

Brown's Data Science Initiative (DSI) is a growing, transdisciplinary, collaborative unit, supporting research and education in data science across Brown's campus. DSI facilitates and conducts both domain-driven and fundamental research in data science, educates the next generation of data scientists, and explores the impact of the data revolution on culture, society, and social justice.
