The NIHR School for Public Health Research is delighted to announce it will fund up to 16 pre- and post-doctoral Fellowships 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 fellowships are expected to begin between January and March 2020 and will be available across the School’s eight academic centres.
Fellowships will be aligned to the School’s research programmes and themes:
- Public mental health
- Places & communities
- Children, young people & 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. We are also keen to encourage applicants who may also have worked or be working within public health practice but wish to pursue an academic or practice academic career.
Fellowships will be advertised from Monday 29th July and links to the advert will appear once released.
