The Alan Turing Institute
The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. The Institute is named in honour of the scientist Alan Turing and its mission is to make great leaps in data science and artificial intelligence research in order to change the world for the better.
Data Science for Science Programme
The Data Science for Science programme works alongside researchers from all disciplines across the Turing's university partner network, and with national research facilities, to make effective use of state of the art methods in artificial intelligence and data science.
Our aim is to contribute to the Institute’s mission – to make great leaps in data science and artificial intelligence research in order to change the world for the better – by ensuring that research across universities and national facilities make use of modern computational data science and AI methods to push forward the boundaries of science and to make new discoveries.
The Alan Turing Institute’s Data Science for Science programme is looking to hire two Research Fellows to work on research that applies data science and AI methods to environmental science. We are looking for people who will significantly grow the research activity at The Alan Turing Institute, in collaboration with our partner organisations, and gain external funding to underpin this activity. Candidates will be experts in data science and artificial intelligence with experience in working in an interdisciplinary setting, within the context of environmental science. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
