Participate in a UoB Turing Data Study Group

We are seeking data scientists to participate in our 2021 DSG. The challenge focus doesn't need to match your research area; as long as you understand the research techniques to be used and are open to experimenting with different approaches, the DSG will be a fantastic opportunity to develop your data science skills using real-world data. You'll also forge new networks for future research projects while building links within The Alan Turing Institute, its university partner network, and industry. PhDs, postdocs, those with equivalent non-traditional qualifications/experience and other early career researchers are encouraged to apply.


Due to ongoing COVID-19 precautions, this DSG will run remotely over three weeks with optional precursor events during the first week, w/c Monday 19 July, and the study group itself over weeks two and three, Monday 26 July – Friday 6 August. 

How to apply

Applications are open. To apply, please complete an application form online and email a copy of your CV to Kim Ekste, DSG Project Manager Complete your application form online here.

Deadline: Sunday 20 June, 23:59 BST. You must submit both the application form and your CV by the deadline to be considered. Successful applicants will be notified on or shortly after Thursday 24 June.
