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 Defence & Security programme at the Turing is looking to expand a newly formed team of research engineers working on real-world problems aligned with securing the UK. Following in the footsteps of the institute’s namesake, Alan Turing, the team operates at the intersection of mathematics, engineering and computing and works in close collaboration with the Turing’s National Security partners.
We are a cross-disciplinary team and encourage applications from both generalists and specialists including those who self-identify as engineers, computer scientists, machine learning practitioners, mathematicians, statisticians or more widely as data scientists or data engineers.
The team practices an agile, experiment-driven approach and values a positive, supportive and collaborative environment in which ‘lifelong learning’ is encouraged. We embrace failure as a learning opportunity and necessary precursor to success.
Your role will be to bring together cutting-edge research and motivating mission challenges, using expert data science, software engineering and stakeholder management skills to create next generation capabilities for our partners. You will be empowered to take ownership of your work and operate with a high level of autonomy in your role, to deliver measurable impact.
Day to day, you will collaborate with technical and subject matter experts from our partner organisations as well as scholars, engineers, and data scientists from across the Turing’s research community, to enhance the applicability of research for mission problems. You will create software that implements research and applies it to our partners’ data in a readable, reliable, and reproducible fashion. You will present your work to a range of audiences including research colleagues, senior decision makers and non- technical stakeholders. You will work with state-of-the-art advanced cluster and cloud platforms to realise our collaborators' data science and artificial intelligence research at scale.
This role will be based at the hub8 working space in Cheltenham.
