Caution: This message was sent from outside the University of Manitoba.
Dear Martha, The Government of Manitoba is launching a new paid Data Science internship program. The Data Science Leaders in Training Program is an 18 month paid internship for early career data scientists and data professionals interested in pursuing a career in the public service. This program offers professional experience and training at the intersection of data science and policy, allowing participants to put their data skills to use to positively impact the lives of Manitobans. Skills and knowledge will be developed and enhanced through three challenging work placements, under the guidance and mentorship of senior leaders and data professionals in the organization, and a variety of opportunities for classroom and hands-on training. Interns will contribute to the development of evidence-informed policies and decisions that support government priorities by working on exciting data projects that span multiple domains and datasets. This program offers exposure to data not available in any other sector, and an opportunity to leverage data science techniques in the service of Manitobans. We invite you to circulate this opportunity to the students in your department. We invite anyone interested in learning more about the program to join us for a virtual 30-minute information session on Friday September 9th at 12:00 PM Central Time by clicking this link: Data Science Leaders in Training Program Information Sessionhttps://teams.microsoft.com/l/meetup-join/19%3ameeting_OWY4NjEzOGQtMjFiYS00ODMxLTg2NzItZWM0OGQxZjA4YmE2%40thread.v2/0?context=%7b%22Tid%22%3a%22abf64de9-2a5c-4d77-baa2-a76265367d3a%22%2c%22Oid%22%3a%2268e62253-ae41-4988-b73f-751613968020%22%7d.
