Call for Applications for the Turing Enrichment Scheme now Open!
8 January 2021
The Turing Enrichment Scheme is now open for applications in 21/22 to PhD students. The scheme supports PhD student placements at the Turing Institute. This could be an excellent opportunity for PhD students whose Research ties in with AI and Data Science. Note that is no 'typical' Enrichment student, and we welcome students from a broad range of disciplines.
To help students find out if the scheme is right for them we will be running an information session during the application period. This will take place on 12 January 2021, 15:00-16:00 GMT. Registration is now open.
Deadline for applications: 12 noon on 2 February 2021
PhD students should contact their PhD supervisor in the first instance to ensure they are supportive. The placement should support and enhance the current work towards the PhD thesis and be supported by the student's supervisor. Students usually join us in their second or third years of a typical doctorate to further the work they are undertaking for their research project.
If your PhD supervisor is supportive, it is strongly recommended candidates contact Dr Panos Panagiotopoulos for advice before submitting their application. Dr Panagiotopoulos is part of Turing's Training Steering group and has been involved in designing the assessment criteria for the Enrichment Scheme and has kindly offered to review Queen Mary applications internally for the Turing 2021/2022 Enrichment Scheme. Applications should be made directly to the Turing - more information on the Turing 2021/2022 Enrichment Scheme webpage.
