The Alan Turing Institute

The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence, founded by the universities of Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, UCL, Warwick, and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Headquartered at The British Library, our mission is to make great leaps in data science research in order to change the world for the better. Our goals are to undertake world-class research in data science, apply its research to real world problems, drive economic impact and societal good, lead the training of a new generation of data scientists, and shape the public conversation around data.

Core areas of our research range from data-centric engineering, high-performance computing and cyber-security, to smart cities, health, the economy and data ethics.

We regularly advertise for talented researchers, students, data scientists, engineers and operations staff to join our team. We also run regular calls for Visiting Researchers and students to join the Institute and support our research.
