Context Relevant Selects Fish & Richardson to Help Protect, Defend and Fuel Growth of its Innovative Big Data Analytics Technologies
At Context Relevant, we believe in maintaining strong ties between academia and industry and in supporting today’s students, who will become tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and inventors. We know that today’s PhD students will work in a completely new scientific landscape, where both data and opportunities for discovery are plentiful. That’s why we’re pleased to announce that Context Relevant is launching its Data Science Fellowship program for the 2013-2014 academic year. The program includes a year of graduate support (tuition, fees and a stipend); access to Context Relevant’s Big Data Workbench, an industry-leading platform for distributed data science and big data analytics; and the opportunity to apply for a paid summer internship at Context Relevant, working on exciting problems that are only now possible, in the data science era. PhD students from a wide variety of disciplines—from computer and information science, to the social and behavioral sciences, as well as the natural and physical sciences—are invited to apply. We seek applicants who are bright, curious, and creative. A program of this type is unusual among companies of our size. Other industry-supported graduate fellowships come from companies with thousands or tens of thousands of employees, rather than in the double digits. But our roots lie in academia: among Context Relevant’s leadership and science and engineering teams are numerous PhDs who can’t wait to bring the power of data science to today’s most promising young scientists. Here is the call for applicants and the link to the application. Applications are due by 11:59 pm PDT on March 15, 2013.
