At the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow, we are looking to develop the next generation of highly skilled researchers. Our Unit has a particular focus on developing and using cutting-edge methods to understand how social, behavioural, economic, political and environmental factors influence health. We are offering studentships across our research programmes, starting September 2020.
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’). For most students a particularly relevant Masters Programme will be the taught Programme in The Development and Evaluation of Interventions, with core courses in the Development of Interventions, Evaluation Design and The Fundamentals of Evaluation. Others that might be relevant are the taught Masters in Sociology and Research Methods and the taught Masters in Public Health. To support our students’ development we provide training in all aspects of research and in transferable academic and generic skills. 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.
