Four-year Wellcome PhD studentships in Public Health Economics and Decision Science – Applications for 2021 are now open 

We seek to train the next generation of researchers in conducting high-quality analysis of the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of complex multi-component public health interventions and policies to reduce non-communicable or chronic diseases. In 2019, we were awarded funding from Wellcome for five cohorts of seven top-calibre PhD students to work on some of the most pressing public health challenges. We are now recruiting  the second cohort of seven PhD students – information on how to apply can be found here

Chronic disease accounts for a large proportion of the burden of disease in high-income countries…

Much of this burden is due to powerful ‘upstream’ determinants…

Upstream determinants have a complex interaction with ‘downstream’ behavioural factors…

Together, upstream and downstream factors form a complex system of interdependent influences.
