This is a fully funded studentship, including tuition fees, an annual tax-free stipend of £14,777 ( index-linked) and contribution towards research and training costs. It is linked to the Liverpool and Lancaster Universities Collaboration for Public Health Research (LiLaC), which is part of the National Institute for Health Research School for Public Health Research (SPHR). Three other fully-funded studentships are being advertised by LiLaC at the same time, on different aspects of inequalities in health. All PhD studentships appointed by LiLaC will have access to development and support opportunities through the NIHR Trainees Coordinating Centre and Academy.
