The Institute’s postdoctoral and research scientists help anchor Columbia’s presence as a leader in data science research and applications and serve as resident experts in fostering collaborations with the world-class faculty across all schools at the University. They will also guide, plan, and execute data science research, applications, and technological innovations to address societal challenges and related University-wide initiatives.

The Data Science Institute (DSI) at Columbia University invites applications for the position of a Data Post-Doctoral Scientist. The post-doc will work on new methods for scalable and privacy-respecting digital identity systems. These systems will provide digital identities suitable for low-infrastructure environments, used to facilitate access to resources such as medical care, education and food assistance. The candidate will evaluate existing digital identity proposals, identify gaps in capabilities, develop new components of identity systems, work with external stakeholders and experts in privacy and international development, and prototype digital identity components or systems.
The Data Science Institute (DSI) at Columbia University invites applications for the position of a Data and Cancer Post-Doctoral Scientist. The recipient of this two-year research position will be embedded in a Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) cancer tumor board, an interdisciplinary board of clinicians reviewing plans of care for complex cancer tumor cases using state-of-the-art genomic, imaging analysis, and natural language processing where appropriate.
We seek research scientists who will conduct independent cutting-edge research in the foundations and/or application of data science or related fields, and/or be involved in interdisciplinary research through a collaboration between the Data Science Institute and the various schools at the University.
We seek research scientists who will serve as Columbia’s resident experts to foster collaborations with faculty across all the schools at Columbia University.
