The call is open to mid-to-senior career stage researchers based at the Institute’s 13 university partners. Both current Turing Fellows and new applicants are eligible to apply.
These fellowships will be offered on a 12-month unfunded basis with various benefits that being part of the Turing’s vibrant, interdisciplinary and collaborative research community brings. All fellowships will commence on 1 October 2021. The Alan Turing Institute are committed to building a diverse network of fellows and encourage applicants from a range of backgrounds to apply.
