Student/Early Career Programms

Student and Early Career Professional Opportunities in RDA

Participation of students and early career professionals within the RDA is tremendously important to us.  Not only does RDA benefit greatly from this diversified and inter-generational community, but engagement with data communities throughout the world also affords this next generation of leadership the opportunity to obtain expertise regarding data infrastructure while becoming well-connected.

Students and early career professionals are welcome to join RDA as an individual member, or apply to participate in one of the following regional Student/Early Career programs:

United States:

Through the RDA/US Data Share Program, RDA is engaging U.S. students and early career professionals in a monumental way.  Due to the success of its 2014-15 pilot scholars program that was funded by the National Science Foundation, RDA/US received award funding from the Sloan Foundation to continue and expand the pilot as the Data Share Program over the next three years. Students accepted within these programs have the opportunity to participate in RDA’s Working and Interest Groups, under the mentorship of RDA/US Advisory Committee members, as well as attend RDA’s bi-annual Plenaries.  Learn more >>

Europe:

RDA Europe offers support to Early Career European Researchers & Scientists working with Data to attend the plenary meetings. The aim of this programme is to introduce European early career researchers & scientists to RDA, highlight what data scientists/practitioners are doing, leverage on Early Career Researchers & Scientists knowledge to support Plenary activities and support the Working & Interest group activities.  Learn more about the current edition >>
