Your application and research proposal must have the support of an Oxford faculty member in an MPLS department and confirmation from the department that they are ready and willing to host you. Please ensure you contact the department and their Research Facilitator’s well in advance of the closing date as there may be internal deadlines and processes you will need to comply with.
The Fellowship Programme is integrated within Oxford’s Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences Division (MPLS), which includes both the core AI departments of Computer Science, Engineering Science, Mathematics and Statistics, as well as the University’s non-medical science departments; Physics, Chemistry, Materials, Earth Sciences, and Biology.
The research elements of the Fellowship programme take place within the stimulating intellectual environment of research groups embedded within the academic departments of MPLS. Beyond MPLS, the Fellows benefit greatly from the unparalleled breadth of research across Oxford. In particular, Fellows undertake learning on the social and ethical implications of AI, providing a grounding in issues on the motivations, governance, and security of the use of AI.
