Deadline is April 9th and most people will see that as far away but usually the paperwork involved in such applications is quite intense so I would suggest that people start immediately if they are gonna apply for this.

Two fellowships, funded by the UK Medical Research Council (MRC) and GSK, respectively, provide support for two years training in medical statistics. For the first year the successful applicants will study for the MSc degree in Medical Statistics at the London School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (LSHTM). This will be followed by a one-year professional attachment at one of the African centres associated with the research programme of the MRC Tropical Epidemiology Group (TEG) at LSHTM. During the professional attachment, training Fellows will develop their statistical and research skills by working on studies with guidance from TEG scientists.

This support is intended to foster excellence in the field of medical statistics and epidemiology in sub-Saharan Africa. The fellowship will provide costs for fees, stipend (£16,400 per annum) and return air travel.

To be eligible, candidates must:

(i) be resident in and a national of a country in sub-Saharan Africa
(ii) be in possession of an excellent degree in mathematics or statistics
(iii) have at least 1 year of work experience in medical statistics or epidemiology

Support will not be given as a supplement to other funding, nor to students who have funding from other sources.
