Information about doctoral training programmes and PhD projects focusing on infectious disease research at the University of Edinburgh. The University currently plans to deliver a mix of in-person and digital teaching for the academic year starting in September 2021. We are monitoring government guidance on Covid-19 prevention measures and we will adjust our 2021-22 plans in response to any relevant changes. Based on current information we expect some physical distancing measures are very likely to still apply when the academic year starts in September 2021.
The Wellcome Trust 4-yearPhD programme in Hosts, Pathogens and Global Health provides broad, interdisciplinary training in all aspects of infectious disease research, from immunology to epidemiology, phylogenetics and evolutionary biology. Applications for entry in October 2022 will open later this autumn.
This newly established Wellcome Trust 4-year PhD programme in One Health Models of Disease will combine key training in experimental techniques, bioethics and social sciences, to apply new ‘One Health’ models of neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, developmental, and infectious diseases of humans and animals.
