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 LSHTM followed by a year working as a statistician at one of our partner centres in Africa. The fellow continues to receive mentoring, supervision and support for the duration of their fellowship from members of our 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 Scheme is highly competitive, with over 1000 applications in 2018. The majority of our fellows are now either working as medical statisticians at research institutions in Africa, or are engaged in PhD studies.
- The fellowship will provide costs for fees, stipend (£16,400 per annum) and return air travel.
To be eligible, candidates must:
- be resident in and a national of a country in sub-Saharan Africa
- be in possession of an excellent degree with a background in mathematics, statistics or a related subject
- have at least 1 year of work experience in medical statistics or epidemiology
DEADLINE: April 26 2019
