Centre for Global Health Histories - Research

The Centre for Global Health Histories (CGHH) draws strength from its departmental members of the Department of History, CGHH's home department, and from its association with other departments within the University of York.

The members and associates of CGHH study medicine, health, science, environment and technology from a variety of perspectives. These research activities are greatly strengthened by national and international collaborations with partners in academia, multilateral agencies, governments, non-government organisations and philanthropies.

The Centre is keen to encourage the development of collaborative grant applications with partners in the UK and beyond. Its members also invite post-doctoral candidates to contact them for sponsorship of fellowship applications. Most of these opportunities are only available to EU nationals, who are eligible to apply for specific schemes and do not require UK work permits to work at the University of York.

The Centre for Global Health Histories encourages established academics from overseas to get in touch about sponsorship for visiting fellowships that are available on a competitive basis in the UK and in their home countries. It also welcomes queries from scholars from overseas planning to visit the UK for research and completion of book projects to apply for association; the Centre is in a position to provide office space and access to excellent library and archive facilities to visitors.

CGHH is fully supportive of University of York's goals in relation to the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), a new 5-year £1.5 billion fund announced by the UK Government to support cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries. More information on this fund can be found via the University's GCRF homepage
