Home PhD Global Health PhD Fellowship 2022

About the Programme

The United Nations University International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH) is the United Nation’s designated think tank on global health. UNU-IIGH undertakes policy-relevant research and analysis to inform United Nations agencies, member states and other key decision-makers on critical topics for global health.

The Global Health PhD Fellowship programme presents an opportunity for its recipients to add value to their PhD experience by enabling them to be part of the processes of policy analysis and translation within the UN global health context. The Fellowship aims to provide hands-on experience in carrying out a research project outside the realm of academia.

Successful candidates will be assigned a project under the mentorship of a UNU-IIGH researcher. The Fellowship is between six to twelve months. During this time, PhD Fellows are expected to engage in the activities of the Institute actively. The PhD Fellowship will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
