New call for proposals: EDCTP Master's Fellowship in Epidemiology and Medical Statistics
This grant will support the training and career development of junior researchers in the fields of epidemiology and medical statistics. It will provide funds for the fellow to undertake a taught master's course in epidemiology or medical statistics at an internationally recognised centre of excellence and to conduct a field study of 6-12 months duration at an institution in sub-Saharan Africa to build practical skills.
Applicants must be based at a non-profit academic/research institution in sub-Saharan Africa and be at an early stage in his/her research career, but with some relevant work experience and a demonstrated interest and motivation in pursuing a research career in epidemiology, medical statistics or data management in sub-Saharan Africa. Proposals that include south-south and north-south partnerships between sites with established epidemiological research platforms and sites with limited capacity are encouraged.
