The Alan Turing Institute invites leading data scientists from the UK and around the world to become a Visiting Researcher at the Institute during its first academic year.
The aim of the Visiting Researcher Programme is to generate collaborations, facilitate knowledge exchange and explore new or emerging research topics in data science; the Institute welcomes applications from researchers with an interest in helping the Institute to advance its strategic priorities. You can access our recent Shaping our Strategy document here.
The duration of stay for a Visiting Researcher is flexible and can range from a week to several months, but we anticipate a typical placement will be between 8-12 weeks. The Institute will typically cover accommodation costs and help with making these arrangements. Visiting Researchers will be based at the Turing Institute headquarters in the British Library, London, but there is scope to share research time with other academic institutions.
While they are in residence, Visiting Researchers will be expected to take part in workshops and seminars, and work closely with Turing researchers to contribute to research projects, share knowledge and develop potential areas for long-term collaboration.
Calls for Visiting Researchers will be made at least quarterly, with the first deadline set to Friday 21st October 2016. We anticipate the next deadline to be in December; additional deadlines will be made available soon.
Interested researchers should visit our Opportunities page to find out more about the placements and how to apply.
