Queen’s PHS and KFL&A Public Health are proud to announce an exciting and innovative new Predoctoral Research Fellowship - a jointly-funded, jointly-supervised PhD training opportunity focusing on sexual health implementation science, to start in Fall 2023!
We welcome all applications and we are particularly interested in applicants with a history of public health research, practice, or administration in sexually-transmitted infection (STI) prevention and control, including HIV.
The successful applicant will have Master’s level training in epidemiology, public health or a related
discipline, with appropriate methodological skills.
The focus of the candidate’s proposed research project may include such aspects as:
- epidemiological analyses of STI comorbidity patterns (syphilis, gonorrhea, HIV);
- molecular analyses (genome sequencing, RFLP analysis) to identify high-risk sexual networks
and linkages to low-risk general population segments;
- analyses of point-of-care tests and other interventions to interrupt STI transmission.
PhD students in Public Health Sciences are guaranteed minimum funding of $21,000 per year for four years, with further income possibilities coming from Teaching Assistantships, Research Assistantships, or Research Fellowships. Many of our students receive national or provincial scholarships.
For more information, please visit the website for the PhD in Public Health Sciences at Queen’s
University. The priority deadline to apply is January 31, 2023 or until the position is filled.
