About the Project
The studentship is co-funded by Public Health England (PHE) and the ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership at Cambridge, with supervisors based in CEDAR and PHE. The successful candidate will be expected to capitalise on the opportunities offered by both funders – including developing knowledge and experience of public health delivery at the national level via supervisors based at PHE, and the rich training programme offered by the ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership.
The student will be registered with the University of Cambridge and belong to one of its Colleges. The student will be integrated into the Dietary Public Health research programmes within CEDAR (www.cedar.iph.cam.ac.uk). CEDAR is a UKCRC centre of excellence in public health research that aims to understand the population-level determinants of dietary and physical activity behaviour, evaluate the effectiveness of interventions and estimate the long term costs and benefits of behaviour change. CEDAR is part of the MRC Epidemiology Unit (www.mrc-epid.cam.ac.uk), which investigates the causes and prevention of diabetes and obesity.
