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.
The Alan Turing Institute is kick-starting a six-month research project to study national attitudes to current and future uses of data science and AI. Focusing on the UK, the research will inform strategic priorities for the country’s research and development efforts, and will be used as evidence to underpin the development of the Institute’s long term public engagement strategy from 2023/2023 onwards. The post-holder will have full-time responsibilities for pursuing this research in collaboration with Professor Helen Margetts and Dr Cosmina Dorobantu from the Turing’s Public Policy Programme, as well as Professor Patrick Sturgis from the London School of Economics. The post-holder will also liaise at relevant times with the Head of Events and Engagement and Public Engagement Manager to ensure that the outputs of this research project inform the development of the Institute’s public engagement strategy.
This is a post-doctoral level appointment, suitable for an early career researcher with solid theoretical foundations in survey research methods as well as experience designing survey experiments and analysing the resulting data. The successful candidate will join the Public Policy Programme and will be a part of a large multidisciplinary team. The postholder will report to the Director of the Turing’s Public Policy Programme.
