Funding Opportunities

The IDSAI offer a range of funding opportunities for staff and students.  In addition, as a partner University of the Alan Turing Institute, University of Exeter staff and students also have opportunity to access a number of Turing schemes. For more information about current schemes please select one of the buttons below.

Call now open: deadline 21st January 2020

The Turing's flagship Enrichment Scheme enables PhD students from any UK university to go to the Turing Institute for 6-12 month placement, during which you can contribute to projects, form collaborations and develop new skills. Students continue their PhD in conjunction with their current supervisor, while enriching their research and making new collaborations during their time at Turing.

The scheme is based full time at the Turing Institute headquarters at the British Library in London and students may be eligible for a stipend top up of up to £7,000 (per annum) and/or travel allowance.

More details about the opportunity can be found on the Turing website.

Deadline for applications: rolling applications

The IDSAI welcomes Visiting Fellows from all disciplinary backgrounds and at various stages of their careers.
Visiting Fellows are researchers from external academic or non-academic organisations who are resident in the Institute for short periods of time. During their Fellowship, Fellows conduct their own research whilst benefiting from, and contributing to, the research culture of the IDSAI.

If you would like to propose a Fellow, please read the further information‌ about the resources available for Fellows and the application process. Applications must be submitted by a sponsor who is a member of academic staff in Exeter. Applications can be submitted at any time and will be considered on a rolling basis. Decisions will be communicated within two weeks of submission.

Deadline for applications: The deadline for the first round of IDSAI Research Awards has now closed. The next round is due to open in early 2020.

IDSAI Research Awards aim to support early-phase development of ideas for innovative, interdisciplinary data science and AI research across Exeter. Academic members of staff from all Colleges are invited to apply for the time of an IDSAI Research Fellow to work with them on a pilot research project.

It is expected that by the end of an IDSAI Research Award the recipients will have generated new pilot data to underpin future applications for funding or which will provide the foundations for research publication(s).

This is the first call for IDSAI Research Awards. In future we expect to issue calls twice annually.
