The PhD fellowships
Phd fellowships will be up to four years, including a period of up to six months at either LSHTM or University of Cambridge. PhD degrees will be undertaken at one of the three East African Universities in the consortium.
Applicants will be expected to hold a Master’s degree in a relevant discipline. Applicants who have not yet successfully completed their master’s degree training will not be considered.
Post-doctoral fellowshipswill be for two years, including up to six months at either LSHTM or University of Cambridge. Applicants will be expected to have been awarded or defended their PhD training by the time they submit their applications. Applicants who graduated more than 5 years ago will not be considered. Courses will be attended and projects should be designed to develop the applicant’s potential to compete, in future, for international research funding.
Fellows will be required to take advantage of the consortium research training courses/resources, excellent mentorship and strong research networks to achieve expected outputs (high quality publications, international collaborations and research grants).
The selection will involve a 3 step process that will be based on review of preliminary applications, assessment of full applications submitted by shortlisted candidates and face to face interviews.
