NIHR SPHR Fellowships in Public Health Research 2019

The NIHR School for Public Health Research (SPHR) is funding up to 16 pre- and post-doctoral Fellowships as part of an initiative to build capacity in public health research.

The NIHR School for Public Health Research is a partnership between eight leading academic centres with excellence in applied public health research in England.  The School aims to build evidence for effective public health practice, and its research looks to meet the needs of policy makers, practitioners and the public to improve population health and reduce health inequalities.

The fellowships are expected to begin between January and March 2020 and will be available across the eight members of SPHR.

Fellowships will be aligned to the SPHR research programmes and themes:

  • Public mental health
  • Places & communities
  • Children, young people & families
  • Health inequalities
  • Efficient and equitable public health systems
  • Changing behaviour at population level

Pre-doctoral fellowships - applications are invited from individuals with a Master’s degree and with a strong academic record who wish to develop a career in public health research that is closely connected with public health practice.
