The Alan Turing Institute PhD Studentship at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge, UK is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a PhD position in artificial intelligence. The funding allows successful candidate to work for 5 years. Applications are invited up to January 04, 2019.

The Alan Turing Institute offers the opportunity to motivated graduate students to receive full funding to undertake a PhD at the University of Cambridge.

Turing doctoral students spend approximately half their time based at the Institute headquarters at the British Library in London. They will apply and register for their doctorate at the University of Cambridge, where they will spend the remainder of their time. Students will be supervised by faculty from Cambridge who are also Fellows of the Institute or substantively engaged with it.

Studying at the Institute offers students a unique opportunity to undertake a data science focused PhD in a multidisciplinary environment. Studentships at the Turing support graduates to enrich their research through interdisciplinary engagement with the wider data science and AI communities. The Turing offers a generous tax-free stipend of 20,500 per annum, a travel allowance and conference fund, and tuition fees for a period of 3.5 years.
