Child Health Research PhD Studentships
The UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH) is a division of the UCL Faculty of Population Health Sciences. Together with its partner, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust, ICH contains the largest concentration of research expertise in the scientific basis of child health in Europe. The DoH Biomedical Research Centre for Children’s Health was awarded to ICH/GOSH in 2007 and 2011, and in RAE 2008 ICH was part of a UCL return to UoA4 in which 70% of staff were rated as of international quality (4*, 40%; 3* 30%). In addition, ICH's return was scored as 100% 4* for both Environment and Esteem indicators. The Institute is committed to high quality postgraduate education and has a strong track record of training and support for its postgraduates. A high level of interaction exists across the Institute between basic scientists, clinicians and population health scientists. The Institute is offering a number of research studentships for the academic year 2014-15, supported by the Child Health Research PhD Programme.
