Data Science Industry Fellowships

This program is for budding data scientists who want to work on a collaborative project with industry, and for companies that would like to investigate an in-house data science challenge, at no cost.

Cybera’s Data Science Industry Fellowships will help aspiring data scientists gain valuable industry experience by working on a company-specific challenge.

This programs has been funded by the Government of Alberta, and operated in collaboration with the Pacific Institute for Mathematical Sciences.

The present fellowship program is being offered with support from Alberta Innovates.
