The SSPH+ Global PhD Fellowship Program in Public Health Sciences funded by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (Horizon 2020 - COFUND)
GlobalP3HS is an innovative Swiss doctoral program in public health sciences designed for exceptionally talented students from all over the world. Our program supports 50 young scientists that perform cutting-edge research and are keen to become the next generation of public health leaders in both the academic and non-academic sector.
GlobalP3HS students are under the supervision of one of 200+ public health faculty members affiliated with an SSPH+ partner. They are enrolled at their supervisor’s university and registered in one of several structured PhD programs led by SSPH+ Faculty members. They follow courses choosing from a wide range of interdisciplinary offers, including health economics, public health, epidemiology, social health sciences, nursing or law. Students must pass at least 18 ECTS, including formal training in transferable skills and research ethics. Furthermore, internships are offered to allow students to explore non-academic career paths as part of the PhD career as well.
The sandwich model is a key feature of GlobalP3HS. It is a successful supervision model to build sustainable research capacity in low and middle income countries (LMICs). It includes a LMIC partnership for the PhD thesis, shared supervision, fieldwork and/or research stays in the LMIC.
There have been three calls under GlobalP3HS from July 2018 to October 2019. There will be no new openings.
