Benefits of Membership

An invitation to attend the Berkeley Statistics Annual Research Symposium (BSTARS), a members-only event

This conference surveys the latest research developments within the department. It consists of keynote lectures given by faculty members as well as presentations by PhD students. Members are invited to present at the conference and describe the statistical work underway at their companies. It is an excellent opportunity for alliance members to engage directly with our faculty and graduate students.

On-campus recruiting events

Allies can give informational sessions or tech talks within the department in order to meet students and present career and internship opportunities.

On-campus interviews or office hours

Allies can reserve an office in Evans Hall for three days (or more pending approval). Conference rooms, classrooms, or lecture halls may also be reserved when available.  

Jobs, internships, and event announcements

Events, jobs, and other announcements are marketed to students and faculty through email, bulletin boards, and posters placed in high traffic areas. As an exclusive benefit, IAP members can have announcements posted on our Facebook and LinkedIn alumni pages.

Graduate student resumes

Access to an IAP members-only file of current Statistics and Biostatistics graduate-student resumes maintained by the department.

Seminar invitations

Invitations to all our departmental seminars and a convenient subscription to seminar announcements.

Facilitation of contact

Collaborations, visits, and contact with faculty/students can be facilitated by the department.

Master’s capstone project

Allies may propose data sets or research projects to be considered for inclusion in the MA capstone course (whether to include a particular data set or project is decided by the faculty member in charge of the course). Industry Allies also may attend end-of-year oral capstone presentations by MA students.

ASA accreditation contribution

Attendance at the BSTARS conference and departmental seminars contributes toward the professional development requirements of the ASA accreditation program, PSTAT.
