With more than 48K job listings for data
scientists on LinkedIn right now, but with fewer than 20K people registered
with that title, the growing skills shortage in big data analytics has never
been more evident.
To enhance early career researchers’ job
prospects and upskill high-tech workforces, our 2016 summer schools are
focusing on some of the most sought-after skills demanded by today’s employers
- high performance computing (HPC), big data, engineering simulation and
These tools are transforming the way that researchers
and businesses are competing on a global scale. But there is a huge unmet
demand for the data scientists needed to make sense of all the valuable
information available today.
We’re offering four separate week-long
programmes in these four influential subjects at £150 per week.
- Big data, 13 June 2016
- Engineering simulation, 27 June 2016
- Visualisation, 11 July 2016
- HPC, 18 July 2016
These courses are suitable for PhD level (aspiring
for, achieved or equivalent) researchers in academia or industry in any STEM
subject who encounters complex application problems that require significant
resources in one of the subject areas.
We caught up with Kirk E. Jordan, who has been part of the Hartree
Centre Summer Schools from the start, to ask why he would recommend
attending to both aspiring researchers and current industry
