Applications open: fully-funded Wellcome Trust 4yr PhD programme: ‘One Health Models of Disease: Science, Ethics and Society’ (University of Edinburgh)

                Dear colleagues
<br>
<br>Edinburgh Infectious Diseases and the Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society (CBSS), University of Edinburgh, are now open to receiving applications from the first cohort of students on a new Wellcome Trust-funded 4yr PhD programme: ‘One Health Models of Disease: Science, Ethics and Society’. This scheme is open to biomedical scientists, social scientists, and bioethicists.
<br>
<br>In Yr1, students on the programme will receive class- and lab-based bioscience training, as well as seminar-based learning in the ethical and social dimensions of techniques such as gene-editing. In Yrs2-4, students will complete their doctoral research, with students who are continuing down a social sciences/bioethics PhD pathway being supervised in CBSS by Sarah Chan, Agomoni Ganguli-Mitra, or me. Students on the CBSS pathway will, ideally, have a BSc in a biological sciences subject and an MA/MSc in a relevant social science (e.g. sociology, STS) or humanities (e.g. bioethics, law) discipline.
<br>
<br>The programme will start in October 2020 with a deadline for application of 12PM (GMT) on Thursday 16 January 2020. The programme will have an intake of 6 students per year, and is open to all students regardless of country of citizenship. All students will have their fees paid in full, and receive a tax-free starting stipend of £19,919 per annum - plus travel and research funds. Details are here: https://www.findaphd.com/phds/program/wellcome-trust-funded-four-year-phd-programme-in-one-health-models-of-disease-science-ethics-and-society/?p4622
<br>
<br>I’d be delighted to answer any questions for students wanting to do an STS/sociology/bioethics PhD as part of the programme (e.g. in the sociology of lab animal welfare, etc.).
<br>
<br>All the best
<br>
<br>Martyn
