Faculty Data Science & Data Engineering Fellowship (Jan 2023)

London, England, United Kingdom

Full Time Entry-level / Junior USD 30K - 65K *

Artificial Intelligence is the most important technology of our age, but it is only valuable when it is applied in the real world - enhancing products, improving services, and saving lives. Since 2014, Faculty (formerly ASI Data Science) has helped over 390 PhD graduates, post-doctoral researchers, masters and experienced software engineers transition into a career in data science through our fellowship programme.

The Faculty fellowship programme helps academics and STEM post-graduates become highly-skilled data scientists and transition successfully into careers and industries that are ready to benefit from artificial intelligence. After two weeks of intensive lectures and workshops at Faculty, wherein fellows will learn how to apply their technical knowledge towards the application of data science, fellows are paired with project companies for a six-week data science project, during which fellows are paid the London Living Wage.

The finale of the fellowship is Demo Day. Fellows have the opportunity to present their hard work to an audience of over 100 guests. The event is a great chance to network with hiring managers and influential individuals from a wide range of businesses from London, the UK and Europe.

To make AI real, we help organisations work out what they could do with AI, and then help them to do it, and after completing the Faculty fellowship, our alumni have gone on to work for many leading companies; from tech giants like Google DeepMind, Amazon and Facebook, to the fastest growing startups like Deliveroo and Babylon Health, to established FTSE 100 companies such as Lloyds and easyJet.
