SACEMA invites applications for bursaries to study towards Masters or PhD degrees, based at and supervised through SACEMA, in fields relating to epidemiological modelling and biostatistics.

Note: There is another link to the application process for External PhD Bursary applicants and Emerging Researcher Fund applicants. If you intend to be based at another university in South Africa, with a supervisor there, you should click on the other link.

Internal Bursary holders register at Stellenbosch University. The department of registration will depend on the applicant’s background and the main thrust of the intended research. Typically, SACEMA students may be registered in the Department of Mathematical Sciences or the Department of Global Health Sciences. In addition to any resources offered by the registering department, Masters and PhD students will have access to a desk in SACEMA. Full participation in the activities of the centre is expected. SACEMA’s stimulating research environment includes regular group discussions, research seminars, and workshops. Relevant coursework will be recommended by SACEMA in consultation with supervisor(s), satisfying the requirements of the registering department.

Please complete the Internal Bursary application form (link below), upload supporting documents according to the instructions, and commission an academic referee’s support letter, all to be received by the closing date for applications: Saturday 30 June 2018.
