Work with us

Collaborations with external organisations are an essential part of our interdisciplinary activities and our researchers are working with a range of organisations from business and industry, the public sector, and the third sector. These collaborations are a key pathway to ensuring that fundamental and applied research at the university can be translated into real-world impact.

The Institute brings together the collective strengths of our academic data science and AI community ranging from our educational activities to our research base that spans fundamental methodological advances to applied work across our academic disciplines in areas such as transport, energy, healthcare, and econometrics.

We are always keen to explore potential collaborative projects in areas of mutual interest and there are many mechanisms through which this can be supported, for example through sponsorship of a PhD student, development of a joint funding proposal, or even co-supervision of an MSc project.

If you’re interested in exploring the options, or would like to be kept informed of our activities, then contact us on dsai@contacts.bham.ac.uk.

Current opportunities

Turing Data Study Groups

The Alan Turing Institute is partnering with the University of Birmingham to deliver a Turing Data Study Group (DSG) in summer 2021. These intensive, collaborative hackathons bring together challenge owners from industry, government, and the third sector with talented multi-disciplinary researchers from academia to address real-world problems.
