– Exposure to solar and artificial UV and determinants for skin cancer risks
– Environmental and professional exposure to fine particles

Students will be supervised by senior researchers at iPRI who also are Professors at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, and by the biostatistics team.
The students should be familiar with at least one statistical package (R, SAS, Stata, etc) and should have a good knowledge of the English language.
