Fully-Funded PhD studentship opportunities

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 two studentships across our six research programmes, starting September 2019. These will be on a three-year (full-time) basis to those with a Masters degree (or equivalent training) with a research component in a relevant scientific discipline OR over a four-year period as an opportunity for postgraduate students to gain an appropriate Masters degree before starting a doctorate (‘1+3 studentships’). Part-time studentships are also welcome. Our staff and students have joined us from all over the world, and come from a range of academic disciplines. To view studentship opportunities for our research programmes, visit our website.
