The Data Sciences Institute (DSI) co-leads the prestigious Eric and Wendy Schmidt AI in Science Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Toronto, a program of Schmidt Futures.

From climate change to infectious disease, artificial intelligence (AI) can help us tackle the challenges that humanity faces by accelerating the pace of scientific research and development. The Eric and Wendy Schmidt AI in Science Postdocs program boosts the work of early-career scholars in engineering, mathematics and natural science by giving them vital tools in AI. Experience with AI is not a requirement, but applicants must have the desire to learn new AI methodologies that stand to accelerate discoveries in their domain.

The University of Toronto is Canada’s leading research university and the home of seminal work in artificial intelligence, from deep learning and neural networks to the interfaces between AI and the natural sciences.
