About the Fellowship

The Alan Turing Institute, in partnership with the Office for AI and UKRI, have announced the AI Fellowship call.

These Fellowships provide the opportunity for leading researchers to undertake high quality, ambitious and transformative research with high impact. Fellowships can last up to 5 years and offer 0.5-1 fte Fellow salary contribution, plus other research expenses. The remit of this call is broad, covering all areas of Artificial Intelligence.

Eligibility:

  • Turing Senior AI Fellowships are prestigious appointments for existing leaders in the field and applicants should already be demonstrating leadership equivalent to a full professorial position.
  • Turing AI Fellowships are aimed at established mid-career researchers with recognised leadership potential.

The demand management process

Applications are limited to three per institution in total, i.e. across both fellowship strands. As a result the University is running an internal selection process.

In order to be selected as one of the University of Bath candidates, interested academics must submit a one page statement, supported by an up-to-date CV, by Monday 11 March 12:00 pm. This must include:

  • the level fellowship you want to apply for
  • brief summary of your proposed work, highlighting any potential partners
  • statement which clearly demonstrates how you meet the criteria for the relevant level of fellowship

Send you application to Claudia Gumm, Research Development Manager Email: c.gumm@bath.ac.uk
