UNIVERSITY OF SHEFFIELD

A+ A-    Αποστολή Εκτύπωση   

Four-year Wellcome Trust PhD studentships in Public Health, Economics and Decision Science are now available to the UK and international applicants.
Establish the world’s first Doctoral Training Centre in Public Health, Economics and Decision Science capitalizing on existing infrastructure and research excellence. The Wellcome Trust DTC programme will meet an identified training gap in interdisciplinary and quantitative skills in the biomedical postdoctoral workforce.

The University of Sheffield is a public research university in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. It received its royal charter in 1905 as successor to the University College of Sheffield, which was established in 1897 by the merger of Sheffield Medical School, Firth College, and Sheffield Technical School.
Students must be proficient in written and spoken English, normally demonstrated by grade C or above in GCSE English Language or an acceptable English language qualification.
Course Level: Studentships are available to pursue PhD programme.
Study Subject: Studentships are awarded in Public Health, Economics and Decision Science. This PhD programme is unique in its focus on interdisciplinary public health, health economics, mathematical modelling, and statistics. To equip students with relevant skills, the first year combines multi-disciplinary methods training tailored to each student’s background, cohort-based learning activities and exposure to public health decision-making practice. This is followed by PhD research on a topic that is agreed between the student, our pool of expert supervisors and the programme directors.

Scholarship Award: Each four-year studentship provides:
• A generous stipend at Wellcome Trust rates
