Full-time placements for enhancing UK based PhD students' research
About the Enrichment scheme
The Enrichment scheme offers students currently enrolled on a doctoral programme at a UK university the opportunity to join us for up to 12 months at the Turing. Students continue their PhD in conjunction with their current supervisor, while enriching their research and making new collaborations during their time at the Institute.
Enrichment places are offered for 6, 9, or 12 months with start dates in October 2019 and January 2020 and are based full time at the Institute headquarters at the British Library in London. Enrichment students may be eligible for a stipend top up of up to £5,500 (per annum) as well as a generous travel allowance.
What are we looking for?
We welcome applications from students who will embrace the opportunity to enrich their own research and take the opportunity to engage with others. We encourage applications from a broad range of academic disciplines and backgrounds, especially those whose research spans multiple disciplines and applications and aligns with the Institute’s research areas. Students should consider how they would best utilise a placement at the Turing and what they feel they could contribute to our academic and broader community.
Students will remain enrolled at their university while they are based full-time at the Turing in London and must have the support of their supervisor or university to study away.
Please note applications for the 2019 enrichment scheme are now closed.
The Alan Turing Institute is committed to championing equality, diversity, and inclusion. If you have questions about the Enrichment scheme or require any adjustments to the application process please contact our team on firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0203 862 3345.
