The Alan Turing's project
The Alan Turing Institute (ATI) has just announced the next round of Doctoral Studentships.
Here’s the original blurb with all the relevant information. The guys in the picture are not part of the supervisory teams (but I think I will be…).
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.
Turing students will have access to a wide range of benefits unique to the Institute:
- 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
- Networking opportunities through the Institute, university and strategic partners
- Supercharge and speed up research with access to cutting edge IT resources; Azure cloud (with credits), Cray Supercomputer, EPSRC Funded Tier 2 HPCs, High Spec local desktops with GPUs and UK Supercomputer Archer
- Bespoke HQ designed for optimal study and inter disciplinary collaborations
Studentships include a tax-free stipend of £20,500 per annum (up to 3.5-years), plus home/EU tuition fees and a travel allowance. A limited number of fully-funded overseas studentships are also available.
Additional studentships may be available through our Strategic Partners – HSBC, Intel, Lloyds’ Register Foundation and UK Government – Defence & Security with projects aligned to our strategic priorities.
In line with the Institute’s cross-disciplinary research community, we particularly welcome applications from graduates whose research spans multiple disciplines and applications.
