The Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) is opening applications for its 2018–19 Data Fellowship Program open on Friday 13 July. The program gives ten high-performing data specialists from Commonwealth agencies the opportunity to work with CSIRO’s data innovation group, Data61.
During their three-month placement, fellows develop solutions for data-related problems or opportunities. The placement is a chance to step outside your day job and work on data analysis, forecasting, developing IT feeds to create prototypes that improve, or completely redesign, an approach to real-life problems.
Former fellows have carried out a variety of data-related projects including a real-time file identification system to support digital forensics, improving the timing of social media posts and using location data from Australian Business Numbers to analyse business information.
