Nuffield Department of Population Health

DPhil programme in Population Health for entry in October 2017

The Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH) brings together over 500 staff from world leading research groups, with around 100 students on taught Master’s and Doctoral programmes. We conduct large-scale epidemiological studies and clinical trials in China, Mexico, India, Russia, in addition to the UK and other developed countries. These studies provide reliable evidence on the burden and determinants of the major causes of premature death. Our research has a global span and impact, with collaborations from more than 50 countries, and our students and researchers work on several of the world’s largest and most detailed observational epidemiological studies such as UK Biobank, China Kadoorie Biobank and the Million Women Study.

Our research programmes provide training in all aspects of population health research, from statistics and epidemiology, health economics, health services research, health policy and promotion, and ethics. We are advertising more than 40 project titles for 2017 entry. Candidates may also submit their own research proposal for consideration.

Our student-led Research Student Group arranges a wide range of activities outside the day to day research work our students undertake, from social events to seminars and journal clubs. Our students are also invited to a wide range of Departmental events and groups, including our Early Career Researchers Network.

We offer students generous allowances for expenses such as attendance at relevant conferences, training courses, and fieldwork.

Applications are open for entry in October 2017.

The January 2017 admissions deadline has now passed; applications are still open for entry in October 2017 but will be considered only if places remain available, and cannot be considered for competitive university funding.
