Course summary

Programme overview

Our ability to fully exploit new molecular and genetic technologies in epidemiology depends on a new generation of interdisciplinary scientists who can harness the benefits of these technologies in exciting and productive ways. This 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.

The programme will give you the opportunity to undertake research training tailored to your needs through a series of intensive short courses, and you will benefit from supervision by highly regarded academics in a dynamic research environment.

Careers

Our graduates are most likely to find post-doctoral research positions within leading universities. A number of our graduates have been successful in securing their own independent post-doctoral fellowship funding both within Bristol and elsewhere. Other potential destinations include the NHS and industry, particularly the pharmaceutical industry.
