Training and placement opportunities

The Centre for Academic Child Health has a wealth of experience in hosting a variety of placements and training opportunities, ranging from school student work experience and short-term placements for university undergraduates to student selective components and electives for medical students.

The Centre for Academic Child Health is committed to a holistic and global perspective on child health.  We value students and researchers from diverse backgrounds who understand the context, culture, social and political history that underpins the lived experience of children, and who help us ensure that our research is applied and relevant for the families we wish to support.

We offer a range of opportunities for research projects for intercalated BSc, MSc and PhD studies. We host fellowships with support from a range of funders and for scientists returning to work after a career break.

Our research areas include injury prevention, chronic fatigue syndrome, nutrition in pregnancy and childhood, parental sleep and the role of social media in parenting.  Many projects can be tailored to meet individual requirements.  For enquiries contact

The Opportunity Bristol 2021 funding scheme is currently open for applications, with a closing date of 31 May 2021. The scheme provides financial support for UK nationals from Black or mixed Black heritage backgrounds to transition from undergraduate to PhD-level study by supporting studies at Master’s level (including MRes, MPhil and MScR).
