MRC Skills Development Fellowships are personal three-year capacity building training awards for talented researchers to support key transition points in their careers. They are suitable for very early career researchers to explore, consolidate and further develop their skills in a priority area in which they are already active or in which they are seeking training. They are also suitable for researchers at different career stages who wish to transform their career by developing new skills in a priority area.

Duties and responsibilities

We are seeking to appoint fellows seeking to further develop their quantitative skills in these key research themes:
• Infectious Disease Analysis and Modelling
• Health Informatics
• Health Economics

Essential requirements

Applicants must have a PhD in a related field of study conferred by the start date of the Fellowship. There is no restriction on career stage for applicants but the salary range is fixed and so applicants should ensure this meets their experience and expectations.

1. Expressions of interest (EOI): deadline extended to 4th March 2019

• Applications not submitted via the Imperial College recruitment system will not be accepted.
• Please follow the additional guidance provided in the Imperial-SDF guidance document and in the EOI and full application templates, and include all required documentation as detailed in the guidance for each stage.
• Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
• Candidates should contact potential supervisors directly from those listed at http://www.imperial.ac.uk/school-public-health/mrc-skills-development-fellowships/ this should be done as early as possible to enable time to develop a research proposal.
• Supervision must be agreed in order to progress to submit a full application.
