Apply For TEG Postgraduate Training Fellowship Scheme In Medical Statistics For African Scientists

Brief Description:

The TEG Training Fellowship Scheme launched in 2005 and forms a key part of TEG’s investment in capacity development strategy. The Scheme enables promising research students from Sub-Saharan Africa to undertake MSc training in Medical Statistics at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) followed by a year working as a statistician at one of the partner centres in Africa. The fellow continues to receive mentoring, supervision and support for the duration of their fellowship from members of the Group.

The summer project, chosen by the fellow, often provides an introduction to the research topic to be pursued further during the placement year. During the placement year, the fellow is exposed to different aspects of research including study design, data management, analysis and reporting of findings. They are guided by local statisticians and researchers as well as relevant TEG members.


The fellowship will provide costs for fees, stipend (£16,400 per annum) and return air travel.
