Seven PhD studentships available to start October 2022

We are pleased to be launching seven full-time PhD studentships focusing on adult social care in England with support from the NIHR Academy. These studentships will start in October 2022/January 2023. 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.

London School of Economics and Political Science – 28 July 2022

Applications are being sought for research relevant to adult social care practice in England. The successful applicant will join the LSE’s Department of Health Policy’s MPhil/PhD programme and work closely with colleagues in the Care Policy and Evaluation Centre (CPEC) at LSE.

The deadline for applications through the Department of Health Policy is 28 July 2022.

University of Birmingham – 21 July 2022 

The Department of Social Work and Social Care is recruiting one PhD scholarship, starting in late September 2022. A start of January 2023 could also be considered. This Scholarship aims to support a promising researcher in the field of adult social care practice. Applications will be considered for research on any aspect of English adult social care practice that is consistent with NIHR SSCR’s priorities. Birmingham are keen to support proposals that demonstrate originality – perhaps in terms of exploring innovative approaches to engaging with citizens and communities or in terms of applying new theoretical or methodological approaches.

The deadline for applications is 21 July 2022.
