Details

Fully Funded TEG Training Fellowship 2019 is available for application. The MRC Tropical Epidemiology Group (TEG) led by Professor Helen Weiss, is based within the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. TEG launched a fellowship scheme in 2005 which forms a key part of TEG’s investment in capacity development strategy.

Benefits

The fellowships provide support for two years 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).  Furthermore, you will get a one-year professional attachment at one of the African centres associated with the research programme 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. Above all, the fellows will receive costs for fees, stipend (£16,400 per annum) and return air travel.

The Scheme 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 our partner centres in Africa. Moreover, the fellows continue to receive mentoring, supervision and support for the duration of their fellowship from the Group.
