Turing Opportunities

As a partner University of the Alan Turing Institute, University of Exeter staff and students have opportunity to access a number of Turing schemes. For more information about current schemes please select a button below.

Applications are now open to take part in the next Data Study Group (DSG) taking place 20-24 April 2020. DSGs are intensive five-day collaborative hackathons in which researchers work on real world challenges and data from industry, government and the third sector. This is a great opportunity for early career researchers, PhDs and postdocs to rapidly develop their data science skills. It also offers participants the chance to forge new networks for future research projects and build links between the Turing and industry.

The challenges are:

CRUK Cambridge Institute - Modelling interactions driving breast cancer development
Greenvest Solutions - Forecasting solar panels' energy supply with satellite data
• Shield Digital - Detecting illegal online pharmacies and vendors of counterfeit prescription medication
UCL - Identifying hospitals which are underperforming when participating in clinical research

The deadline is Monday 2 March at 12 noon GMT.  Find out more and apply.

The Turing are looking for early career researchers interested in acting as a Principal Investigator (PI) at the Turing’s Data Study Groups (DSGs). This opportunity is primarily for early career academics. Applications should be submitted as soon as possible. They are currently looking for PIs for the following challenges at the April DSG event (20 - 24 April):

  • DSTL: Mitigating bias in models developed using machine learning with existing reproducible analysis pipelines in various areas such as image detection and relevance analysis.
  • Shield Digital: Detecting illegal online pharmacies and vendors of counterfeit prescription medication.
  • Greenvest: Predicting solar energy generation using metrological quantities and satellite images
