The American Family Insurance Data Science Institute (DSI) at UW-Madison is growing, and we seek data scientists, postdocs, research software engineers, and student interns to join our team.
We aim to hire people with complementary skillsets who will interact as a team and learn from each other. Job titles and salaries will be determined based on successful applicants’ experience and qualifications. The DSI is committed to providing opportunities for professional development and career advancement.
The DSI mission is to perform cutting-edge research in the fundamentals of data science, to catalyze the translation of this research into practice, and to advance scientific discovery in collaboration with researchers across campus and beyond. Our vision is to lead a vibrant, innovative, inclusive, and collaborative data science research community and advance the social good through a coherent research agenda backed by resources, space, and data science expertise. As a member of the DSI team, you will be key to our success.
The DSI data scientists will consult with domain scientists across a wide range of topics and participate in research projects as highly-valued team members. Data scientists are encouraged to help facilitate collaborations and shape research projects in their early stages. Self-directed research is possible if mechanisms can be identified to support that work and if it aligns with the mission and vision of the DSI. In addition, data scientists are expected to participate in the program activities of the institute. We are currently hiring a Data Scientist I. Apply by 1/30/23.
