- Academic and government research and computing labs
- Private companies who already employ data scientists and run competitive internship programs
- LSST project data center
- aLIGO detector sites
- IRIS Data Management Center which facilitates the data archival, distribution, and processing for Earthscope and other seismic observatory networks.
PhD trainees will be required to complete at least one summer internship, with the potential for travel support.
