Turing Senior AI Fellowships and Turing AI Fellowships

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.

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.

Please take time to read the important information below regarding the Internal Selection Process before applying.

Internal Selection Process - DEADLINE 5pm 19 March 2019

Please find below details of the internal selection process, which has been put in place within the short window before the Call closes on 29 March 2019. This is because the University has a cap of three applications.

A panel, which will include the Turing University Leads and some of the University Turing Fellows, will assess interested applications, and use the call assessment criteria to select the most competitive fellowships.

Interested applicants must follow the following process:

  1. Please let Susan Davies (sdd1@soton.ac.uk) know if you are wishing to apply for either Fellowship as soon as possible.
  2. Applications need to be prepared in the Flexigrant system that Turing is using, and needs an indicative costing prepared, and a letter of intent from the Head of School.
  3. Applications must NOT be submitted. Instead download from the system and send to Susan Davies by 5pm on 19th March.
  4. Internal Selection panel will meet and decide which 3 to put forward by close of play 19th March.
  5. Candidates will be notified of the outcome on 22nd March, together with any feedback.
  6. Only the 3 chosen candidates will be permitted to submit by 29th March.
