The BIDMaP Emerging Scholars Program is accepting fellowship applications from recent PhDs in basic science or data science fields interested in working at the interface of machine learning, the natural sciences and climate change. 

The Bakar Institute of Digital Materials for the Planet (BIDMaP) is a new institute in UC Berkeley’s new College of Computing, Data Science, and Society (CDSS), bringing together machine learning and data science with the natural sciences to address one of society’s most urgent challenges: climate change. BIDMaP is focused on developing new techniques in machine learning that will enhance and accelerate discovery in experimental natural sciences and development of novel materials to address climate change. To this end, BIDMaP promotes collaboration between world-renowned AI/ML experts and chemists, as well as other physical scientists. Among other new materials, we explore modular materials such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs) for clean air, clean energy, and clean water.
