First Doctorship in Data Science

You may even call it post-doctorship, as the level is beyond the traditional PhD degree. It is not a degree, not competing with university programs, but instead, akin to a fellowship or apprenticeship to learn doing state-of-the-art applied research, discover ground-breaking results or applications, and translate your discoveries into seminal material suitable for a broad audience. It is intended for professionals with substantial experience, perhaps to people who already have a PhD in a…

How to tailor your Academic CV for Data Science roles

The below is advice I was asked for by a friend in astronomy looking to tailor their academic CV for data science roles when I was organising our team recruitment at Royal Mail, posted on my LinkedIn here. I thought it might be useful for other astronomers or, more generally, academics looking to make a similar transition.

The main comment I have is that you're…

I did not change anything to keep it funny as intended. Of course, you should add a back loop in the Machine Learning box: an arrow pointing from the "Program" box back to the "Output" box.
