The Career Field Resource pages describe the more common fields that employ scientists with advanced training, with a short list of websites which will help you understand the field. Each section has:

  • at least one or two articles to provide an overview of the field or career paths;
  • resources specific to Berkeley (access to opportunities you can pursue while a student or postdoc);
  • more general sources of information including professional associations, sites with industry news and career advice, and fellowship/job listings.

Data scientists generally have a research-based career in government, industry or for nonprofits – for example working in technology or healthcare organizations. For most roles, it is helpful to have both technical skills and an understanding of the business or industry problems that you might solve.
