Data Science has burst on the scene as a new employment area where demand for candidates outstrips supply. It is also a field that values PhD candidates – particularly from quantitative subjects. If you're wondering whether the academic path is right for you, but cannot imagine wasting the technical skills you've developed in academia, you might want to consider a career in Data Science, 'the sexiest job of the 21st century' according to Harvard Business School.
This session will be hosted by ASI, an organisation who's helped more than 100 PhD graduates and postdocs to transition to this new area of industry. They will give an overview of Data Science in general, the present and future of the field, discuss how it is evolving, and what opportunities exists if you're looking to leave academia. They will cover the skills required, the type of work involved, Data Science vs Data Engineering, and the different entry routes for budding Data Scientists wanting to get into the field.
The session will include both lecture and Q&A
