BD-STEP Big Data Training Program

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are recruiting postdoctoral fellows with backgrounds in physical sciences, advanced mathematics, or engineering for the Big Data Scientist Training Enhancement Program (BD-STEP). BD-STEP is a two-year fellowship that matches individuals who have experience with data modeling and computer programming, as well as interests in clinical, health services, and bioinformatics research, to VA medical centers where they will participate in collaborative training in research-focused environments. This opportunity prepares the next generation of healthcare data scientists who will be capable of using large clinical and research datasets to efficiently and effectively advance cancer research.
