Student Resources

We are collecting more resources specifically for data science students at UD including research and internship opportunities, student funding opportunities, training opportunities, and a campus wide listing of data science related degree programs and courses.

Funded Research Opportunities

In addition to the funded positions listed below feel free to reach out to DSI Resident and Affiliated Faculty directly to discuss funding for graduate research.

NSF-funded NRT: Computing and Data Science Training for Materials Innovation, Discovery, and AnalyticS (NRT-MIDAS)

The NSF-funded NRT: Computing and Data Science Training for Materials Innovation, Discovery, and AnalyticS (NRT-MIDAS) is a graduate traineeship for doctoral students in Computer Information Sciences, Electrical and Computing Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Chemistry. In this traineeship doctoral students will learn to use high performance computing and data science to discover, innovate, and analyze new synthetic and biologically relevant polymeric materials with tailored properties and function. Through the research and educational activities in this NRT, trainees and advisors will also improve equitable access to the soft materials and polymers data, science, and technology knowledge that could reduce costs by eliminating trial-and-error based materials exploration and promote sustainability through lean manufacturing.
Interested students should check out the links in the website: https://sites.udel.edu/midas-nrt/
and can contact

NIH funded T32: Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, and Biomedical Data Science (CBB)
The CBB T32 training program for PhD in Bioinformatics Data Science (BDS) aims to provide rich and innovative training activities encompassing course curriculum, and internships, workshops and seminars to facilitate inclusive, experiential learning in an interdisciplinary team science environment for workforce development in computational biology, bioinformatics, and biomedical data science.

The CBB program brings together 30 program faculty with different career stages and diverse gender and ethnic backgrounds from ten departments at the University of Delaware, and affiliates from Delaware State University. The trainees will be co-mentored by faculty with vibrant research and complementary expertise in thematic research areas, employing mathematical, computational, and data science approaches for multi-scale systems-level understanding of biological networks, from molecular sequence and structure to cellular function, physiology, and interaction with environments.

Six trainees will be recruited annually from eligible second year PhD students for one-year T32 funding support, coupling with a recruitment strategy using university funds to support bringing the strongest predoctoral candidates to campus with a focus on underrepresented groups, thereby providing transformative training for a total of 30 trainees during the 5-year period.
