Access to IDSC Resources for Early Career Researchers
IDSC is committed to promoting data science to enhance data science understanding within the University’s research community and offers three grant programs by which UM researchers can engage in data science. The basic philosophy of the Early Career Researcher award is to allow the uninitiated an opportunity to explore the possibilities of data science and computing using IDSC resources to advance their research and educational goals. This is explicitly intended to not be used to service funded research projects. Rather, it is intended to introduce individuals to the possibility of using data science and computing in their research or educational programs.
The grant includes 90K Service Units (SU) and access to IDSC computational resources for one year. These grants are renewable for one additional year with a second application. The application process includes a one-paragraph discussion of what the researcher intends to do with the SU.
