The Alan Turing Institute 2018 Doctoral Studentships

We are seeking highly talented and motivated graduates to apply for our fully funded doctoral studentship scheme commencing October 2018 and welcome applications from home/EU and international students.

We are the national institute for data science, created in 2015 in response to a need for greater investment in data science research. Headquartered at the British Library in the heart of London’s vibrant Knowledge Quarter, the Institute was founded by the universities of Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, University College London and Warwick – and the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

The Turing 2018 Doctoral Studentships are an exceptional opportunity for talented individuals looking to embark on a career in the rapidly emerging field of data science.

Why Turing?

  • Expert-led training in research disciplines central to data science
  • Access to a range of events, seminars, reading groups and workshops delivered by leaders in research, government and industry
  • Opportunities to collaborate on real world projects for societal impact with our current and emerging industry partners
  • Expert support and guidance through all stages of the studentship delivered by supervisors who are Fellows of the Turing or substantively engaged with us
  • Access to brilliant minds researching a range of subjects with opportunities to collaborate and join or start interest groups
