Recruiting our second cohort of doctoral students onto our four year fully-funded PhD programme, to start in October 2022.

Through the Institute for Global Pandemic Planning, Warwick aims to:
Rapidly mobilise an interdisciplinary response group of experts to advise governments and;
Establish a robust pipeline of doctoral students to expand worldwide scientific leadership on managing pandemics.

Given the scale of damage caused by pandemic outbreaks, very few governments maintain their own teams of interdisciplinary experts. The community of academics who make up these advisory groups are small, and governments risk becoming over-reliant on a small number of advisors, whose assumptions and approach at a time of crisis significantly shape national policy. The experience of Covid-19 demonstrates that governments everywhere need access to interdisciplinary expertise, particularly from epidemiological modellers, public health academics, and thinkers in behavioural science – disciplines in which Warwick has deep expertise.
