Two PhD studentships in international public health policy
The Centre for International Public Health Policy at the University of Edinburgh
is offering two fully funded PhD studentships, covering fees (either UK/EU or
international) and an annual stipend, to commence in September 2009.
The successful candidates will have demonstrable skills in research and an
understanding of issues in global health policy. They will have a postgraduate
qualification in a relevant subject, or equivalent research experience. It is
anticipated that students will be offered funding for three years for MPhil and
subsequent progression to PhD.
Opportunities will exist for students to contribute to teaching and to the
development of teaching materials, especially for e-distance learning.

any area of international public health policy that fits with CIPHP’s research
