[DMANET] Alan Turing Fellowships

Alan Turing Fellowships

This is a unique opportunity for early career researchers to join The Alan
Turing Institute. The Alan Turing Institute is the UKs new national data
science institute, established to bring together world-leading expertise
to provide leadership in the emerging field of data science. The Institute
has been founded by the universities of Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, UCL
and Warwick and EPSRC.

Fellowships are available for 3 years with the potential for an additional
2 years of support following interim review. Fellows will pursue research
based at the Institute hub in the British Library, London. Fellowships
will be awarded to individual candidates and fellows will be employed by a
joint venture partner university (Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, UCL or

Key requirements:
Successful candidates are expected to have i) a PhD in a data science (or
adjacent) subject (or to have submitted their doctorate before taking up
the post), ii) an excellent publication record and/or demonstrated
excellent research potential such as via preprints, iii) a novel and
challenging research agenda that will advance the strategic objectives of
the Institute, and iv) leadership potential. Fellowships are open to all
qualified applicants regardless of background.

Alan Turing Fellowship applications can be made in all data science
research areas. The Institutes research roadmap is available at . In addition to this open call, there
are two specific fellowship programmes:

Fellowships addressing data-centric engineering
The Lloyds Register Foundation (LRF) / Alan Turing Institute programme to
support data-centric engineering is a 5-year, 10M global programme,
delivered through a partnership between LRF and the Alan Turing Institute.
This programme will secure high technical standards (for example the
next-generation algorithms and analytics) to enhance the safety of life
and property around the major infrastructure upon which modern society
relies. For further information on data-centric engineering, see LRFs
Foresight Review of Big Data. Applications for Fellowships under this
call, which address the aims of the LRF/Turing programme, may also be
considered for funding under the data-centric engineering programme.
Fellowships awarded under this programme may vary from the conditions
given above; for more details contact

Fellowships addressing data analytics and high-performance computing
Intel and the Alan Turing Institute will be supporting additional
Fellowships in data analytics and high-performance computing. Applications
for Fellowships under this call may also be considered for funding under
the joint Intel-Alan Turing Institute programme. Fellowships awarded under
this joint programme may vary from the conditions given above; for more
details contact

Diversity and equality are promoted in all aspects of the recruitment and
career management of our researchers. In keeping with the principles of
the Institute, we especially encourage applications from female
