About the Program

As part of our efforts to support and engage with researchers, academics and professional data scientists, we’ve created the Yhat Visiting Data Scientist Program. The program allows for researchers to discuss topics they are passionate about and expose thousands of interested readers to research areas they might otherwise never know about.

The aim of the program is to create a forum for high-quality posts in applied research areas within fields such as machine learning, statistics, operations research, etc, and to facilitate the presentation of research in a less formal setting.

Visiting Data Scientists are welcome to work out of the Yhat offices (if you're located in NY), use our software to facilitate research, and drink beer with the Yhat team!

Interested in applying? Send us an email at with an overview of your proposed topic of research and a bit about your background and we’ll be in touch!
