MRC Skills Development Research Fellow

Imperial College London - School of Public Health

Campus: St Mary’s Campus, Paddington (others as required, London)

Imperial College London is pleased to welcome applications for its MRC Skills Development Fellowship scheme, to be hosted in the MRC Centre for Outbreak Analysis and Modelling and the MRC-PHE Centre for Environment and Health, both within the Faculty of Medicine.

MRC Skills Development Fellowships are personal three-year capacity building training awards for talented researchers to support key transition points in their careers. They are suitable for very early career researchers to explore, consolidate and further develop their skills in a priority area in which they are already active or in which they are seeking training. They are also suitable for researchers at different career stages who wish to transform their career by developing new skills in a priority area.

We are seeking to appoint fellows seeking to further develop their quantitative skills in these key research themes:

  • Infectious Disease Analysis and Modelling
  • Health Informatics
  • Health economics

Applicants are encouraged to read through the guidance for the application process:

These are full time, fixed term posts available for 3 years. Imperial College is supportive of flexible working. The College is happy to discuss the possibility of implementing such arrangements for this post, with suitably qualified people, subject to operational requirements.
