Molecular, Genetic and Lifecourse Epidemiology (Wellcome Trust)

Our ability to exploit new molecular and genetic technologies in epidemiology to the full depends on a new generation of inter-disciplinary scientists who can harness the benefits of these technologies in exciting and productive ways. The Centre for Doctoral Training and its innovative four-year PhD programme equips students with the knowledge and technical skills to achieve this. For applicants with a background in science, maths or population science, this programme offers generous funding from the Wellcome Trust and a distinctive cross-disciplinary approach. The first year is designed to offer you opportunities to investigate core subject areas, such as epidemiology and biostatistics, before you embark on your research study.

Entry requirements

You will have a good honours (minimum requirement is a 2:1) or Master's degrees in a relevant disciplines. As this is a multi-disciplinary programme degrees may be in a range of science subjects, but the applicant should be able to demonstrate how they will apply this to molecular, genetic or life course epidemiology in their research statement.
