Alan Turing Institute 2021-22 PhD Enrichment Scheme

Closing date: 
Tuesday, 2 February 2021

Now entering its sixth year, the Enrichment scheme offers students currently enrolled on a doctoral programme at a UK university the opportunity to undertake a 6, 9 or 12-month placement at the Turing or at one of the two new locations in the scheme. For the first time this year we are partnering with the Jean Golding Institute at the University of Bristol and the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics at the University of Leeds to offer a new exciting opportunity for Enrichment students to engage with an even more diverse community of researchers located in three key areas in the country.

Students continue their PhD in conjunction with their current supervisor, while enriching their research and making new collaborations during their time spent on the scheme.


Enrichment places are offered part-time or full-time with a choice of three different start dates. While on placement students are expected to work out of the Turing offices in the British Library, the Jean Golding Institute at the University of Bristol or the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics at the University of Leeds.

Enrichment students may be eligible for a stipend top up of up to £6,700 in London and £5,200 in Bristol and Leeds and/or a travel allowance.

To find out if you are eligible and for details of how to apply please visit our website.

Applications should be made directly to the Turing by Tuesday 2 February 2021.
