The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine Tropical Epidemiology Group calls application for fully funded Postgraduate Training Fellowship in Medical Statistics for African Scientists.
Two fellowships are available, funded by the UK Medical Research Council (MRC) and GSK, to provide support for two years of training in medical statistics. For the first year the successful applicants will study for the MSc degree in Medical Statistics at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). This will be followed by a one-year professional attachment at one of the African centers associated with the research program of the MRC Tropical Epidemiology Group (TEG) at LSHTM. During the professional attachment, training Fellows will develop their statistical and research skills by working on studies with guidance from TEG scientists.
This fellowship opportunity enables promising research students from Sub-Saharan Africa to undertake MSc training in Medical Statistics at LSHTM followed by a year working as a statistician at one of the partner centers in Africa. The fellow continues to receive mentoring, supervision and support for the duration of their fellowship from members of our Group. Basically, this is intended to foster excellence in the field of medical statistics and epidemiology in sub-Saharan Africa.
