The studentships within this multidisciplinary collaboration provide diverse training opportunities for all aspects of research and encourage the development of transferable academic and generic skills.

A number of three-year (‘ 3′) studentships are available to commence in October 2011. These are for students who already have a Masters degree in epidemiology, public health or another relevant health or social science. It is possible that four-year (’1 3′) studentship(s) may also be available.

If so, this would be for those without an appropriate Masters degree who will undertake the MPhil in Epidemiology or Public Health in Cambridge or the MRes in Environmental Social Science in Norwich during the first year of their studentship.

The minimum academic requirement for entry is a first or upper second class degree or equivalent. The studentships include college and university fees and a stipend. Full funding is available to UK nationals and UK residents. Partial funding is available to applicants from the European Economic Area (EEA).

Scholarship Application Deadline: 30 January 2011
