It is anticipated that funding will be secured for a 3.5-year University Studentship in collaboration with Public Health England. The studentship will cover UK/EU tuition fees, a stipend at the UKRI Doctoral Stipend rate (£15,009 per annum, 2019-20 rate) and an allowance for research and training expenses. This advertisement will be updated when confirmation of funding has been received. Interested candidates are invited to contact the lead supervisor for more information.
We also welcome year-round applications from applicants who can fund their own studies or secure their own external funding.
