PhD student recruitment

We are recruiting our first Institute for Global Pandemic Planning cohort of doctoral students to start in October 2021 on a four year funded PhD programme. The programme will include participation in relevant post-graduate taught courses and development or refining of a research project, followed by full time research to complete that project. Each student will have supervision from academics in at least two of the main disciplines of the centre and across two university departments, with at least one supervisor from one of Warwick Medical School, Warwick Business School, or the Department of Mathematics. Students will share research space to support the cohort in learning together as well as benefitting from their main departmental affiliation.

Students will be able choose among suggested projects or propose their own research projects to potential supervisors. During the first year students will be encouraged to follow post graduate taught courses in the host departments to increase their skills and knowledge relevant to their PhD as well as commencing research. Examples of potential projects and supervisors are given below. There are also profiles of the work and careers of current and past students of supervisors now affiliated with the IGPP.

The studentships are funded by donors to cover a student stipend (currently £15,285 per year), university fees (national and international level). and a Research and Training Support Grant of £5,000. The Wellcome-Warwick Quantitative Biomedicine Programme will additionally support laboratory costs up to £10,000 for students involved in laboratory work.

You can apply for a studentship here. The application form includes the opportunity to upload a curriculum vitae and a personal statement. The personal statement should explain why you are interested in a research studentship undertaking research to support global pandemic planning as well as any aspects of yourself that you want to highlight. Closing date for applications 6th April 2021.
