The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. The Institute is named in honour of the scientist Alan Turing and its 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 looking to build on existing research success at the intersection of machine learning, finance and economics.
The adoption of machine learning and artificial intelligence methods in the financial services industry is opening the door to more robust data-driven decision processes. The Finance and Economics programme brings together a multidisciplinary team of researchers, practitioners and regulators to promote the responsible adoption of AI techniques in the financial services industry and wider economy.
We welcome candidates with a PhD or entering the writing up stage of their thesis with publications in the application of machine learning. The successful candidate should show considerable promise in research in the broad area of data science and machine learning. A track record of research in finance and/or economics is beneficial but not necessary; candidates should nevertheless demonstrate their interest in the application of modern computational and statistical methods in these areas.
The post offers the applicant an exciting opportunity to pursue world-class research and to develop her/his career. The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated ability to work in a highly collaborative manner and be enthusiastic about engaging widely across disciplinary boundaries and with industry, government and the third sector. The successful candidate will help us deliver successful activity including:
