NIHR School for Public Health Research PhD Studentships announced

The NIHR School for Public Health Research has announced it will fund up to 20 PhD Studentships as part of an initiative to build capacity in public health research.

The NIHR School for Public Health Research is a partnership between eight leading academic centres with excellence in applied public health research in England.

The School aims to build evidence for effective public health practice, and its research looks to meet the needs of policy makers, practitioners and the public to improve population health and reduce health inequalities.

The studentships will begin in October 2018 and will be distributed across the School’s eight academic centres.

Studentships will be aligned to the School’s research programmes and themes:

  • Public mental health
  • Places and communities
  • Children, young people and families
  • Health inequalities
  • Efficient and equitable public health systems
  • Changing behaviour at population level

Applications are welcome from individuals with a strong academic record who wish to develop a career in public health research.
