Facilitating world-class research
The Alan Turing Institute, in partnership with the Office for AI (OAI) and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is launching a first call for Turing Senior AI Fellowships and Turing AI Fellowships.
Oxford can submit a total of 3 applications to the outline phase across both career stages.
These fellowships will encourage world-leading senior AI researchers to build and consolidate significant research activity and profile within the UK. They also aim to accelerate the careers of the most promising mid-career AI researchers enabling them to grow their profile both nationally and internationally, build their research teams and extend their research collaborations.
The initiative covers a broad view of AI, including applications of foundational disciplines across mathematical sciences, statistical sciences, computational sciences and engineering. Successful fellows will be expected to collaborate as appropriate across disciplines to ensure positive outcomes for UK society. Consideration may also be given to AI work that interfaces with the life sciences, social sciences or humanities.
Full scheme details can be found on the Alan Turing Institute's website.
The budget for these fellowships is up to £8.5m over five years and it is anticipated that between 3 and 5 fellowships will be awarded.
Fellowships can be used to cover 0.5–1 FTE of the fellow’s salary, a research group and related activities.
A maximum of 3 expressions of interest should be submitted per department.
Candidates should upload the following documentation as a single PDF on IRAMS:
Proposals will be considered by a cross-divisional panel of academics. The decision of the panel is final.
