Applications are open for ISEG PG Training Fellowship in Medical Statistics. The ISEG Postgraduate Training Fellowship in Medical Statistics for African Scientists launched in 2005 and forms a key part of ISEG’s investment in capacity strengthening. 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. The fellow continues to receive mentoring, supervision and support for the duration of their fellowship from members of our Group.

The summer project, chosen by the fellow, often provides an introduction to the research topic to be pursued further during the placement year. During the placement year, the fellow is exposed to different aspects of research including study design, data management, analysis and reporting of findings. They are guided by local statisticians and researchers as well as relevant ISEG members.

The Scheme is highly competitive, we have hundreds of applications every year. The majority of our fellows are now either working as medical statisticians at research institutions in Africa; or are engaged in PhD studies.
