GSK Statistical Non-Communicable Diseases Internships

AIMS has partnered with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) through its Africa NCD open lab to support six 12 month internships for AIMS graduates over the period 2017 – 2020. This will enable AIMS graduates to undertake statistical work in health research groups working in Africa on non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

Each AIMS-GSK intern will be hosted by a health research group at a public or private institution in East Africa. The intern will work on a project that is fully integrated into the research of the host group and will be mentored by an experienced statistician. The intern will also have an academic supervisor appointed by AIMS who will make periodic visits to the group.

Applicants must be AIMS graduates with a strong background in statistics who are interested in pursuing careers in health statistics. Female applicants are particularly encouraged to apply. 

Funding for each intern will include a monthly stipend, the cost of the intern’s travel at the beginning and end of the internship, health insurance and visits by an AIMS supervisor. The costs of hosting the intern, including internal supervision and mentoring, facilities and research expenses will be borne by the host institution.

AIMS graduates interested in applying for any of the MS4CR Internship Opportunities should reach out to the Industry Initiative team.

Applications are now closed.
