The Alan Turing Institute Fellowship Call is now online: https://turing.ac.uk/jobs/alan-turing-fellowships/
The Fellowships are for early career researchers and are for 3 years, with a possible additional 2 years of support. The deadline for application is 15 December 2015.
This is a unique opportunity for early career researchers to join The Alan Turing Institute, based at the Institute in the British Library, London. The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s 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 and the ATI fellowships will be awarded to individual candidates and fellows will be employed by one of the joint venture partner universities.
Alan Turing Fellowship applications can be made in all data science research areas. We have been advised that the ATI is particularly keen for women applicants. Remuneration is described as “competitive with research fellowship pay scales” with an additional London living allowance.
Successful candidates are expected to have:
- A PhD in a data science or adjacent subject (or to have submitted their doctorate before taking up the post)
- An excellent publication record and/or demonstrated excellent research potential such as via preprints
- A novel and challenging research agenda that will advance the strategic objectives of the Institute
- Leadership potential.
In addition to the open call for the Alan Turing Fellowships, there are two specific fellowship programmes in data-centric engineering, and data-analytics and high-performance computing. For further details of these particular programmes, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
