SENUPH project recruiting seven PhD students

One of the aims of the SENUPH project is to support staff capacity building. Thus, we invite staff from the universities in Hawassa, Dilla and Wolaita-Sodo to apply to join the PhD training. We plan to admit seven PhD students starting their studies in September 2016.

Interested staff are invited to present:

  1. A one-page concept note on their research aims
  2. Documentation that they have completed a masters degree
  3. A one-page CV

This information should be sent by June 15 to mailto:eskindir_loha@yahoo.comDr Eskindir Loha at Hawassa University.

An information meeting about this opportunity was held at Hawassa University on April 20.

 

Joint PhD degree programme recruiting students

Joint-PhDs are doctorates, which are done at two degree-awarding institutions. This doctorate means that you are fully registered in two universities, having to comply with admission requirements, and assessment regulations at both institutions, and it will result in one jointly awarded PhD (one diploma with the two university logos).

The other benefits for students are:

  • Access to complementary facilities and resources
  • Exposure to two cultural approaches to research
  • International student mobility
  • Enhanced acquisition of research and transferable skills, such as negotiation skills, use of videoconferencing, adaptability…
  • Better networking opportunities

Recently, Hawassa University and the University of Bergen agreed on such a joint PhD degree.

This programme is funded by The South Ethiopia Network of Universities in Public Health (SENUPH), and nine PhD students have been registered at the home institution which in this case is Hawassa University. The currently available financial support is for staff at Hawassa, Dilla and Wolaita Sodo universities. We plan to admit seven more students (four women and three men) in September 2016.

You can get more information about the admission requirements and about topics that this programme will prioritise by writing to Dr Eskindir Loha or to Professor Bernt Lindtjørn.
