Please read our most recent notice where new projects are discussed. We might accept other projects at our discretion. Such projects would require working on a real-life data set with 10 million rows minimum to extract valuable insights.
Please join our DSA Projects Group where you will publish your project, answer your selected questions about data science, and meet other participants. Also, check our reference document for the next steps. You have now completed steps #1 and #2.
You will receive other messages from us when our "data science questionnaire" is ready, when our data science cheat sheet is written, or when new projects are open. Here's a sample project to give you an idea. We would expect you to work on bigger data sets, go in the technical details including code production (clean, efficient code), and use a much more automated process based on data science, rather than on pure domain expertize and light analytics. However, there is not just one type of data scientist, and both analytic approaches are good as long as they produce good, sustainable results.
