The Alan Turing Institute
The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence whose mission is to make great leaps in data science and artificial intelligence research in order to change the world for the better.
We are looking to hire an outstanding researcher with a background at the intersection of text analysis (e.g., natural language processing), large-scale data, and causal inference (e.g., do-calculus and directed-acyclic graphs) to support various research projects in the area of modelling for policy. The post-holder will join the Public Policy programme and will be a part of a multidisciplinary team of data scientists and modellers focused on developing a new programme of research in policy modelling.
The aim of this role is to construct novel large-scale datasets of public interest (e.g., news corpus linked to macroeconomic data, social-media content linked to government documents, open-spending data linked to development indicators, etc.), and to build statistical causal models that can complement other streams of work in the area of modelling for policy. Given the growing international reputation of The Alan Turing Institute, knowledge in one or more major languages, other than English, is desirable. The candidate will have experience in sourcing different types of large-scale datasets (this may include non-structured ones), as well as in pre-processing, analysing, and specifying and estimating statistical causal models through methods such as do-calculus.
