The Open University Faculty of Health and Social Care is advertising fully funded PhD studentships to start in October 2016 -- Closing Date April 18, 2016
The Open University Faculty of Health and Social Care is advertising fully funded PhD studentships to start in October 2016.
Achieving good health and supporting effective social care for all is essential to achieving social justice, and this lies at the heart of the Open University's mission. Building on existing cross-disciplinary intellectual capacity, an evidenced commitment to social justice and existing local, regional, national and international collaborations and networks, the Faculty of Health and Social Care is funding full-time PhD studentships for an October 2016 start.
Studentships include UK-student fees and an annual maintenance grant starting at £14,000 per annum. There are also places for self-funded part-time study. Students will be supported by two supervisors and have their own working area on campus as well as access to training and personal development.
We are keen to attract students to work with us on research that locates the experiences of patients, carers, family members and practitioners at the fore of inquiry. We place value on participatory and inclusive research particularly with individuals that are marginalised, 'hard to reach' or have complex needs. Applications are invited on one or more of the following themes:
- age, ageing and later life
- children, young people, parenting and families
- death, dying and bereavement
- disability and long-term conditions
- reproductive and sexual health
Closing date: Midday 18 April 2016
Interview date: Late June 2016
