Applications are now open for The Alan Turing Institute’s new Turing Fellow scheme.

Turing Fellows call - an image of a quote about the call

Turing Fellows are the next generation of world leading researchers. They have proven research excellence in data science, artificial intelligence, or a related field, and research interests aligned to the Turing’s Science and Innovation priorities outlined in the Institute Strategy.

Turing Fellowships are aimed at established researchers with the potential to be the next generation of world leaders. They have made important contributions to their research area, are likely leading a programme of research, and have significant postdoctoral research experience.

Each Turing Fellow call will focus on priority areas of strategic importance for the Institute which fellows will support and contribute to during their fellowship. Applicants for this call must have knowledge and expertise in one of the following areas:

  1. Science and Innovation: Environment and Sustainability
  2. Science and Innovation: Fundamental Research in Data Science and AI 
  3. Build skills for the future
  4. Driving an informed public conversation


Fellowships will be offered on a two-year unfunded basis. Turing Fellows are proactive in their engagement with the Institute and receive benefits that being part of the Turing’s vibrant, interdisciplinary and collaborative research community brings in exchange for notable contributions to the Institute’s goals and successes. All fellowships will commence in January 2024. 

The Institute is committed to building a diverse network of fellows and we encourage applicants from a range of backgrounds to apply. 

  • Call opens: 28 July 2023 
  • Call closes: 18 September 2023 (at 12:00 midday BST) 
  • Fellowships start date: January 2024 
  • Open to: Researchers employed at a UK university or research institute with an interest in data science/AI
