Frequently Asked Questions

Updated April 27, 2020

Do these positions take place over the Summer or Fall?

We are currently recruiting for Summer 2020 for most positions, except for Data Peer Consulants and Peer Advisors, which are recruiting for Fall 2020. There is possible continuation for all summer positions into the fall depending on performance, need, and budget.

Will these positions be remote or in-person?

Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, most positions will likely be remote in some capacity. Please contact us at ds-teams@berkeley.edu for more specific inquiries.

Are any research positions available for summer?

The Data Science Education Program has a program focused on research called the Discovery Research Program, but it is not currently accepting new applications this summer so we recommend that you check again at the end of summer for the Fall application. Also, you can stay tuned on our student opportunities webpage as we will continue to post available positions, including research, at a later time.
