The Data Science & Software Services (DS3) creates a central service for faculty and research staff to access expertise in data science and statistical methodology as well as software engineering aligned with research goals. DS3 aims to enhance the research capacity of NYU by providing highly skilled labor for funded projects and increasing the competitiveness of grant proposals.
DS3 is a joint undertaking of the Center for Data Science Moore-Sloan Data Science Environments (MSDSE) project, the NYU Libraries, NYU IT Research Technology, and the PRIISM Center, with connections to affiliated services such as Data Services, High Performance Computing (HPC), NYU IT Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT), and more.

Request a consultation about your project!
This pilot service is aimed at full-time faculty and research staff. Preference is given to grant funded projects, with secondary preference to pre-award projects, as well as some discretionary help, so ask us. Students are not currently able to request services.
We accept project proposals on a rolling basis. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
How can we help you?
DS3 offers service in the following areas:
- Research methodologies in Data Science and Statistics
- Scoping development activities
- Experimental and research design
- Software development for research
- Data analytics for all data types and sizes

Work with us
We are looking to recruit and hire several Junior Data Scientists who will work on targeted data science projects. These graduate students will be mentored by MSDSE researcher scientists or research software engineers. DS3 Junior Data Scientists will gain indispensable, firsthand experience in creating statistical and software solutions to address important research questions. For more information and to apply, email us at email@example.com.
