PhD and Post-Doctoral Scholarships

University of Manitoba in collaboration with the University of Nairobi is offering 4 scholarships for PhD and Post-doctoral training programs.

This training consists of a research project and academic course.

The current Training Program has trained 32 PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and clinical fellows over the past six years.

As the Program is focused on trainees who have already made the decision to have research form a major part of their career, admission will be restricted to PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and clinical research fellows.

Recruitment and the training program web site are coordinated by the Admission Committee.

Recruitment is targeted nationally and internationally, through the web site and directly.

As a measure of the Program’s commitment to a global approach to infectious diseases, slots were specifically held for international candidates
