C67959F7-15D6-4129-BE73-3D0722E625CD-1238-0000039560A23189

The Alan Turing Institute is launching this first call for Turing Senior AI Fellowships and Turing AI Fellowships in partnership with the Office for AI and UKRI.

Introduction

Fellowships will cover a broad view of AI, including applications of foundational disciplines across mathematical sciences, statistical sciences, computational sciences and engineering. Consideration may also be given to AI work that interfaces with the life sciences, social sciences or humanities. Fellows will be expected to collaborate as appropriate across disciplines, and will have the opportunity to collaborate with academia, industry, government and the third sector.

Types of Fellowship

These Fellowships will cover two levels of expertise:

  • Turing Senior AI Fellowships are available to existing leaders in the field (already demonstrating leadership equivalent to a full professorial position);
  • Turing AI Fellowships are available to established mid-career researchers with recognised leadership potential.

What the Fellowship Includes

These Fellowships provide the opportunity for leading researchers to undertake high quality, ambitious and transformative research with high impact, through the award of flexible funding. Fellows will have the opportunity to spend time at the Turing, working collaboratively across the Institute and benefiting from:

  • Networking opportunities across the Turing’s university partner network;
  • Introductions to potential industry partners, collaborators and government bodies;
  • National and international researThese Fellowships provide the opportunity for leading researchers to undertake high quality, ambitious and transformative research with high impact, through the award of flexible funding.
