Declared by Harvard Business Review as the "sexiest job of the 21st century" data scientists are a rare breed, e.g. a well-known McKinsey study estimated already in 2011 that the United States will soon require 60% more graduates able to handle large amounts of data as part of their daily jobs.The new EU funded project the European Data Science Academy (edsa-project.eu) will address this problem in three ways: Demand analysis: through interviews of focused groups and trend mining tools scrutinizing thousands of job descriptions and technology blogs.Data science curricula: high-quality, multilingual and multimodal training materials (eBooks, slides, video lectures, online demonstrators and showcases, data sets, online courses) available on multiple platforms.Training delivery and learning analytics: through the use of platforms such as VideoLectures.NET and iTunes U. A suite of machine learning tools will provide an analytics dashboard ensuring that we deliver positive targeted learning experiences.Closing date: 8 December 2014.We promote diversity in employment and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
