The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Alan Turing Institute (Turing) are providing a Joint Fellowship Scheme which will support both the theoretical development of data science and its practical application to real world problems.
The third joint call for proposals is now open to applications. This call will focus on the following two themes:
- Public policy and government innovation
- Urban analytics.
Mid-career and senior academics, from an UKRI eligible research organisation (RO), with an interest in data analytics and associated fields and their application in either of the two themes are eligible to apply.
Up to two PhD studentships will be attached to each Fellowship and it is expected these will work in cognate areas to that of the Fellow.
The maximum amount available for each Fellowship is £500,000 at 100% full economic cost (fEC) of which ESRC will pay 80%.
Funding will be available for a maximum of 36 months.
Proposals must be submitted by the deadline of 6 June 2019 (4pm).
