We are delighted to welcome applications for three PhD studentships in the MRC-PHE Centre for Environment and Health, starting in 2017. Two studentships will be based at the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics (Imperial College London), and the third will be based at the Environmental Research Group (King’s College London).
Successful candidates will be supported by the training programme structure in the MRC-PHE Centre for Environment and Health and will be provided with bespoke research training to ensure they are equipped with the appropriate skills and experience to become first class researchers.
The MRC-PHE Centre is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for leading cutting edge multidisciplinary research on the health effects of environmental pollutants and the translation of this knowledge to inform national and international policies to improve health. We are uniquely placed to collaborate with expert research groups nationally and internationally to produce high quality cutting edge research and work with public health agencies to apply the results to improve population health. A key component of our Centre’s strategic aim and mission is to train and develop the next generation of research and policy leaders in the environment and health arena.
These studentships provide a generous stipend and tuition fees.
Applicants are expected to hold a first class or upper second class honours degree (or its equivalent) in an appropriate science subject from a recognised university with a strong quantitative/computational background in biostatistics, epidemiology, data sciences, bioinformatics or mathematics and also have a Masters degree or equivalent research experience by the start of their PhD.
To be eligible for fully funded PhD Studentships, applicants must have UK or EU nationality and must meet the following residency criteria:
If none of the residency criteria apply to you, but you are an EU resident, you may apply for a fees-only studentship. Non-EU international students will not be eligible.
Please note that your residency selections will be verified as part of the application process.
