ICLS trains research students and postdoctoral fellows in the secondary analysis of longitudinal data. Four ESRC/ICLS studentships have been awarded for the period 2013 – 2017
ICLS research students are supervised by multi-disciplinary panels and offered taught courses in statistics, a weekly seminar programme and quarterly scientific workshops. Some PhD research is combined with long-term attachment to one of the ICLS scientific programme’s project teams in order to gain apprentice-style experience of working in a research team. Student also learn about communicating their research findings to a variety of academic and non academic audiences. Initially, limited quantitative skills, does not debar first class social scientists from eligibility for training with ICLS.
Prospective students wishing to study health and wellbeing over the lifecourse may apply for studentships indirectly associated with ICLS. Any vacancies will be advertised via the UCL Department of Epidemiology & Public Health. The Department usually hosts a Phd Open Day early in the new year.
