MRC GIDA Fellowships are personal 3-year capacity building training awards for talented early and mid-career researchers to support key transition points in their careers, providing effective career development opportunities to transition to independence.
Following a successful 10-year term, MRC GIDA is establishing a Fellowship scheme, to build upon its existing strengths and to develop world-leading translational research programmes, developing and applying priority skills to public and global health research. The Centre’s mission is to be an international resource and centre of excellence for research and capacity building for the epidemiological analysis and modelling of infectious diseases, and to undertake applied collaborative work with national and international agencies to support policy planning and response operations against infectious disease threats.
MRC GIDA fellowships offer unique and prestigious research and career development opportunities in the context of a world leading centre of excellence.
The scheme aims to build national research capacity in MRC GIDA priority research and disease areas:
Research areas: Outbreak Analysis and Modelling; Global Health Analytics; Vaccines Research; Antimicrobial Resistance; Methods and Tools.
Disease areas: Zoonoses and Animal Diseases; HIV, STIs and Hepatitis; Malaria; Tuberculosis; Influenza; Arboviruses; Neglected Tropical Diseases; Enteric Infections; Bacterial Pathogens; Fungal Pathogens.
Applications must be relevant to one of the Centre’s core priority areas. Applications will not be restricted but are particularly welcome in the areas of Vaccines Research, Antimicrobial Resistance and Outbreak Analysis and Modelling, as well as in the disciplinary areas of Genetics, Evolutionary Research, Statistics and Health Economics.
You will need a PhD in a related field of study (must be conferred by the start date of the Fellowship) areas of Genetics, Evolutionary Research, Statistics and Health Economics, practical experience within a research environment and / or publication in relevant and refereed journals and the ability to produce an original and innovative research proposal which addresses the strategic themes of the fellowship scheme.
