LIVERPOOL CLINICAL PHD PROGRAMME FOR HEALTH PRIORITIES IN THE GLOBAL SOUTH (4 POSTS)
The University of Liverpool and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine seek applications from clinically qualified graduates for our next annual cohort of Clinical PhD studentships, commencing 1st September 2022, and funded by The Wellcome Trust. These posts offer exciting opportunities for research training, and are designed as the first step towards developing a research career in diseases of resource poor settings. The Liverpool Clinical PhD Programme has strong links with many potential overseas research sites.
The successful applicants will be based overseas, typically spending 2 or more of the 3 years in a low- or middle-income country (LMIC), completing a clinical research PhD project, addressing a research question of relevance to local health needs. Applicants may spend a reduced period of time overseas should personal circumstances dictate, but the need to focus on health problems relevant to LMICs would remain essential.
Applicants for the scheme can include graduates who possess a clinical qualification and license to practice in the UK. This includes doctors, midwives, nurses, public health trainees, pharmacists and other allied health professionals and veterinary graduates.
Closing date: 23:30 Friday 18th February
