About

The PhD Epidemiology programme at The University of Manchester enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Epidemiology.

Overview

The programme at The University of Manchester provides key transferable skills and equips our postgraduate researchers with the tools to progress beyond their research degree into influential positions within academia, industry and consultancy.

The emphasis is on enhancing skills critical to developing early-stage researchers and professionals, whether they relate to effective communication, disseminating research findings and project management skills.

What you will learn

Our main research themes within Epidemiology investigate autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, neurological, psychiatric and cognitive genetic epidemiology, male infertility and cancer at a population and family level.

Programme Structure

Research areas covered:
  • the distribution of disease and related health-behaviours and their relationship with the complex interaction between people, place and time and inequalities;
  • genetic and genomic epidemiology to investigate health and disease, particularly where longitudinal clinical data has been collected;
  • the design and implementation of complex interventions, underpinned with evidence from other disciplines including anthropology, social sciences, health psychology and urban planning;
  • the use of more novel applications to capture cross sectional and longitudinal behaviour and outcome measures;
  • using digital/web-based techniques of crowd-sourcing, social media, geo-coding, and machine learning;
  • epidemiological, evaluative and policy related research in the field of substance misuse, within the areas of health and criminal justice.
  • how health service interventions, from policies to lab-based sciences, impact on society more widely
