The Insight Data Engineering Fellows Program is a full-time training fellowship that helps computer scientists and engineers transition to careers in data engineering. When Insight began in June 2012, the goal was to help recent graduates from quantitative academic fields break into the field of data science. In addition to emerging as leaders in the data science community, some of our Fellows with more technical backgrounds were hired on (and are now leading) data engineering teams at companies like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Microsoft. As the program grew, it became clear that there was a strong demand for Fellows who could develop data infrastructures using the leading open source technologies like Hadoop and NoSQL databases. At the same time, there was a large community, from both industry and academic programs like computer science and electrical engineering, that have the core engineering skills and were eager to learn these tools. So, in June 2014 we launched the Insight Data Engineering program to help software engineers and recent graduates become leading data engineers at top-tier Silicon Valley tech companies.

The NASA Postdoctoral Program, or NPP, supports NASA's goal to expand scientific understanding of the Earth and the universe in which we live. Selected by a competitive peer-review process, NPP fellows complete one- to three-year fellowships that offer scientists and engineers unique opportunities to conduct research in fields of science relevant to NASA. These opportunities advance NASA's missions in earth science, heliophysics, astrophysics, planetary science, astrobiology, space bioscience, aeronautics and engineering, human exploration and operations, and space technology. Opportunities are available at NASA centers and other NASA-approved sites.

The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) awards Postdoctoral Fellowships to recent recipients of doctoral degrees to carry out an integrated program of independent research and education. The research and education plans of each fellowship must address scientific questions within the scope of EAR disciplines. The program supports researchers for a period of up to two years with fellowships that can be taken to the institution of their choice (including facilities abroad). The program is intended to recognize beginning investigators of significant potential, and provide them with research experience, mentorship, and training that will establish them in leadership positions in the Earth Sciences community. Because the fellowships are offered only to postdoctoral scientists early in their career, doctoral advisors are encouraged to discuss the availability of EAR postdoctoral fellowships with their graduate students early in their doctoral programs. Fellowships are awards to individuals, not institutions, and are administered by the Fellows.
