International Centre For Lifecourse Studies In Society and Health
ICLS trains research students and postdoctoral fellows in
the secondary analysis of longitudinal data. Prospective students wishing to
study health and wellbeing over the lifecourse may apply for i) UCL/ESRC awards (closing date 13 January 2014 5.00pm); ii) MRC awards or for iii) one of the 3 ICLS/ESRC studentship currently advertised (closing date 31 January 14) to start in October 2014.
ICLS research students are supervised by multi-disciplinary panels and offered taught courses in statistics, a weekly seminar programme and quarterly scientific workshops. There are opportunities to combine PhD research with long-term attachment to one of the scientific programme’s project teams in order to gain apprentice-style experience of working in a research team. Students will also learn about communicating their research findings to a variety of academic and non academic audiences.
Initially limited quantitative skills will not debar first class social scientists from eligibility for training with ICLS.
Information on studentships will be available from the Department of Epidemiology & Public Health PhD Open Day on 9 January 2014
