'African Zoonosis' doctoral scholarship available

We are recruiting to a fully ESRC funded doctoral studentship to examine social, political and economic dimensions of neglected tropical diseases in Africa (January 2015 start).

We are primarily interested in someone who wishes to focus on African trypanosomiasis or Ebola, but will consider other diseases or topics.

We anticipate that successful applicants will already hold a masters degree in an appropriate area of study (global health, medical anthropology, development studies or a cognate discipline). These studentships are available to UK citizens or EU citizens who are ordinarily resident in the UK.

To be considered please indicate please submit an academic cv, a short 500 word statement outlining your preliminary research idea, research questions and methods, and a cover letter explaining your suitability and interest to: by Friday 17 October 2014. If you have any queries you can contact Professor James Smith at the same email address.
