Frequently Asked Questions

Updated July 28, 2020

Will these positions be remote or in-person?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and as per university guidance, all positions will be operating remotely for Fall 2020. Please contact us at for more specific inquiries.

I will be located out-of-state or out-of-country for the Fall. Am I still able to apply?

If you will be located outside of California:
You can still apply! If you receive an offer with DSEP and decide to accept, you must agree to follow all of DSEP's policies in compliance with campus around reporting out-of-state work or your out-of-state address on all necessary platforms (i.e. CalCentral) for tax implications. You must also fill out an out-of-state work agreement via Docusign which your supervisor will provide during the onboarding process. 

If you will be located outside of the U.S.:
You can still apply! If you receive an offer with DSEP and decide to accept, this offer of employment is contingent upon your ability to prove that you are authorized to work in the United States, as required by the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. Due to the highly unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and its widespread implications upon immigration processes and international travel, UCB is permitting temporary telework from abroad for a short initial period of time. If you are reappointed in Spring 2021, unless notified in writing otherwise, your failure to physically report for work at our office in Hearst Field Annex on the UC Berkeley campus, with appropriate work authorization, by Monday, January 11, 2021 for whatever reason – even a reason not your fault – will constitute your voluntarily tendered resignation, not a dismissal.

Are any research positions available for Fall?

The Data Science Education Program has a program focused on research called the Discovery Research Program. Please check their website for the most up-to-date information and deadlines.

The Data Science Education Program also has a pilot program called Discovery Exchange, which links together students for independent data science resarch. Learn more about the program at the Discovery Exchange website.

Where can I find more information about a team or specific position?

You can find information about all of our teams on our Student Opportunities page. You may also find it helpful to review the DSEP Student Teams Structure Chart before applying. More information about specific positions, job descriptions, responsibilities, and qualifications for each position are posted below.

Are there any work-study positions available?

Yes — all paid positions are eligible for work-study, and there is no separate application for work-study applicants. If you receive an offer with DSEP in a paid role and decide to accept, DSEP Staff will contact you about whether you want to use work-study (you must be work-study eligible) for this particular role. If you choose to use your work-study, DSEP will send you an offer through the Work Study Management System, which you must accept in a timely manner so that your work-study can be processed in time.
