2019 PhD Studentships Announced

Posted on May 10th 2019

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaboration for Leadership in Allied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) for the South West Peninsula at the University of Exeter’s College of Medicine and Health is inviting applications for four fully-funded PhD studentships to commence in October 2019. For eligible students the studentship will cover UK/EU tuition fees plus an annual tax-free stipend of at least £15,009 for 3 years full-time, or pro rata for part-time study. Students will be based in South Cloisters in the College of Medicine and Health at the St Luke’s Campus in Exeter.

PhD studentships are linked to project and priority areas. As well as the scientific quality of the proposal and strength of the supervisory team, projects are selected on the basis of congruence with PenCLAHRC aims, links to existing PenCLAHRC projects or themes and the likelihood of health impact. The four projects selected in this round are:

  • What community-based public health interventions have combined impacts on alcohol and substance misuse, domestic violence and mental health?
  • The implementation of integrated psychological medicine services in Devon: An ethnography of change
  • Using mixed methods to inform our understanding of maintaining independence in older people 
  • Non-pharmacological interventions for dementia behaviours: developing and evaluating a ‘living’ evidence and gap map

Deadline for applications May 31st 2019.
