Three doctoral studentships from January 2021

The School launched seven full-time PhD studentships focusing on adult social care in England with support from the NIHR Academy. Four studentships will start in October 2020, and a further three are currently being advertised to start in January 2021. Students will receive an annual stipend, fees and research expenses. Studentships will be based at each one of our Core Member universities.

Doctoral students will be required to conduct research relevant to adult social care practice in England and in line with the School’s Business Plan.

Successful applicants will be expected to participate in activities organised by the School, particularly activities that involve other PhD students funded under this programme at other universities, and, as appropriate, other NIHR and NIHR Academy activities.
