At the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit we are looking to develop the next generation of highly skilled researchers and are offering 5 studentships across our research programmes, starting October 2021.
We are offering three-year studentships to those who have a Masters degree, or equivalent training with a research component, in a relevant scientific discipline. We can also offer, over a four-year period, an opportunity for postgraduate students to gain an appropriate Masters degree prior to starting a doctorate (‘1+3 studentships’). Find out more about being a PhD student at the Unit. We are based within the Institute of Health and Wellbeing, and work closely with our colleagues across both the College of Social Sciences and the College of Medical, Veterinary, and Life Sciences.
