The Alan Turing Institute
Deadline: February 28, 2019
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.
Public Policy Programme
The public policy programme works alongside policymakers to explore how data-driven public service provision and policy innovation might solve long-running ‘wicked’ policy problems and to develop the ethical foundations for the use of data science and artificial intelligence in policy-making.
Our aim is to contribute to the Institute’s mission - to make great leaps in data science and artificial intelligence research in order to change the world for the better - by developing research, tools, and techniques that have a positive impact on the lives of as many people as possible.
As part of our work, the public policy programme has launched a new research project, focused on the role and impacts of women’s representation in data science and AI and how data-driven insights can be used to inform policy and enhance gender equality.
Women in Data Science and AI
Digital technologies, data science and AI have diverse and far-reaching implications for the lives of individuals and the functioning of societies. It is imperative for women to be equal partners in developing the algorithms, setting the research agendas, and building the applications underpinned by data science and AI. Nevertheless, at the moment, women are underrepresented in data science and AI professions. With the goal of remedying this issue, the Alan Turing Institute has established the research project Women in Data Science and AI.
This project will carry out multidisciplinary research to answer the following questions:
Both quantitative and qualitative research will be used to inform our understanding of the gender gap in data science and AI and generate new actionable insights and recommendations to tackle it. We are recruiting for two roles. One Research Fellow will focus on quantitative research, and one Research Fellow will focus on the qualitative aspects of the work. This advertisement is for the qualitative Research Fellow, who is expected to have a social science background.
Ultimately, the goal of the Women in Data Science and AI research project is to increase women’s participation in these fields and ensure that women’s perspectives and priorities inform the insights that data scientists generate, the algorithms that they build, and the research agendas that they define.
The Alan Turing Institute is recruiting a full-time postdoctoral scholar to work in the public policy programme. The scholar will focus entirely on the Women in Data Science and AI research project, applying social science and quantitative research techniques to study the participation and role of women in these fields.
The Research Fellow will investigate:
Research should translate into concrete recommendations and policy measures aimed at increasing the number of women in data science and AI professions.
The successful candidate will join the Institute’s public policy programme and will play an important role in shaping and executing the programme’s research into the role of women in Data Science and AI. The Research Fellow will be able to work closely with academics and policy-makers in an interdisciplinary, dynamic and collaborative environment.
Duties and Responsibilities
The core functions of the post-doctoral Research Fellow are as follows:
The successful candidate will have:
Terms and Conditions
