The Alan Turing Institute

About this Fellowship

Applications are invited for a three year part-time (0.5 FTE) Daphne Jackson Fellowship that will be sponsored by The Alan Turing Institute.

Undertaking research which tackles some of the biggest challenges in science, society and the economy, the Turing collaborates with universities, businesses and public and third sector organisations to apply this research to real-world problems, with lasting effects for science, the economy, and the world we live in.

The host organisation for the Fellowship may be The Alan Turing Institute or any of the Institute’s partner universities:

Five founding universities – Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, UCL and Warwick – and the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council created The Alan Turing Institute in 2015. Eight new universities – Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Queen Mary University of London, Birmingham, Exeter, Bristol, and Southampton – joined the Institute in 2018.

About the Alan Turing Institute

The Institute is named in honour of Alan Turing (23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954), whose pioneering work in theoretical and applied mathematics, engineering and computing are considered to be the key disciplines comprising the fields of data science and artificial intelligence.

The Daphne Jackson Trust

The Daphne Jackson Trust is dedicated to returning researchers to their careers following a break taken for family, caring or health reasons.  Daphne Jackson Fellowships are unique. They offer professionals wishing to return to a research career after a break of two or more years, the opportunity to balance an individually tailored retraining programme with a challenging research project in a suitably supportive environment.  

The Fellowships consist of a challenging research project and at least 100 hours retraining per year. The unparalleled support offered by the Trust’s Fellowship Advisors and administrative staff, coupled with mentoring and retraining provided during the Fellowship, give returners the confidence and skills they need to successfully return to research.
