The University of Southampton
The Alan Turing Institute


Data Science and Artificial Intelligence are evolving rapidly and unpredictably, and research in many disciplines is needed to influence change.

Southampton’s commitment to data science has grown steadily through a series of strategic investments to produce a flourishing multi-disciplinary data science environment.

Turing Fellows Call 2021 - OPEN!

Applications are now open to eligible candidates wishing to become Turing Fellows at The Alan Turing Institute for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The call will remain open for applicants for six weeks until mid-June and mid-to-senior career stage researchers based at the Institute’s 13 university partners are invited to apply.

Turing Fellows are scholars with proven research excellence in data science, artificial intelligence or a related field whose research would be significantly enhanced through active involvement with the Turing network of universities and partners.
