NIHR School for Public Health Research Fellowships in public health research at pre- and post-doctoral level.
Public health research is entering a phase of transformation following the publication of the Academy of Medical Sciences report ‘Health of the Public 2040’. There is a drive to build on existing strengths to make the UK the world leader in public health prevention research, and to meet the substantial public health challenges we face. We want to see more research that is useful, timely and accessible to those responsible for delivering policies and services that ultimately protect and improve the health of the population. We need research that helps answer the most important questions facing policy makers, Local Authorities and service providers. To do this we need to inspire the next generation of academics into public health research with the option to combine academic research with practice as a career pathway.
At this exciting time we are offering up to 16 pre- and post-doctoral fellowships across the eight leading academic centres aligned to the SPHR research programmes and cross cutting themes. The Fellowships will normally be taken up between January and March 2020 and applications are welcome from individuals with a strong academic record who wish to develop a career in public health research.
The NIHR SPHR pre-doctoral Fellowships in Public Health Research are open to individuals with a Master’s degree, for up to 24 months offering those appointed the opportunity to consolidate and build their CV and prepare an application to undertake a PhD in public health. 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.
