Masters Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine
Deadlines - August 2012

Deadline: 6 August 2012

This scheme strengthens scientific research capacity in low- and middle-income countries, by providing support for junior researchers to gain research experience and high-quality research training at Masters degree level. Research projects should be aimed at understanding and controlling diseases (either human or animal) of relevance to local, national or global health. We are particularly interested in requests for research training support in the social sciences, demography, health economics, medical statistics and vector biology.


Eligibility:

You should be:

  • a national or legal resident of a low- and middle-income country, and hold a first degree in subject relevant to tropical medicine or public health (clinical or non-clinical)
  • at an early stage in your career, with limited research experience, but have a demonstrated interest in or aptitude for research.


Application Process:

A completed application form should be submitted by the sponsor by the deadline. The form should be emailed to phatic@wellcome.ac.uk.

The application should include details of your sponsor's track record in training and a list of their other students at the institution. It must be supported by the head of the institution where the research will be based, and a career plan for the proposed candidate must be included.

The full application will be reviewed by the relevant Interview Committee, which makes the final decision. Please note that candidates are not interviewed for this fellowship.
