Wellcome Trust Master’s and Doctoral Training Fellowships

We encourage the most able overseas candidates wishing to do master’s or doctoral training to apply, with our support, for their own fellowship funding from the Wellcome Trust. Although the scheme is called Public Health and Tropical Medicine, it supports a great range of biomedical research including:

•           demographic, social science and health economic studies

•           epidemiological, field and community based studies

•           health care systems and policy research

•           measurement of infectious and chronic disease burden

•           population studies

•           clinical trials and case control studies

•           studies of disease mechanisms in the natural host

•           determinants of disease susceptibility and resistance

•           immunity or resistance in natural hosts or vectors.

 

Doctoral Training Fellowships

Look at the Institute of Infection and Global Health Major Research Themes to find potential Liverpool supervisors. Contact them with your CV well in advance of the deadlines (e.g. 6 months in advance), so that you can develop your ideas with them into a strong fellowship application.

 

Master's Fellowships

This Fellowship normally provides up to 30 months' support, which would include 12 months doing the Institute’s MRes in Clinical Science, combined with up to 18 months to undertake a research project. Look at the Institute of Infection and Global Health Major Research Themes to find potential Liverpool supervisors for the main project. Contact them with your CV well in advance of the deadlines (e.g. 6 months in advance), so that you can develop your ideas with them into a strong fellowship application.
