Applications are invited for a full time PhD (via MPhil) studentship for a project entitled 'Disease modifying treatments for Multiple Sclerosis: exploration of the influences of perceived risks on case management decision-making.'
This studentship is tenable for up to 3 years full-time (subject to satisfactory progress) and will cover the cost of tuition fees at UK/EU rates plus an annual maintenance stipend of £14,000 per year.
Full-time enrolment is preferred, but part-time may be considered for the successful candidate. International applicants may apply but will be expected to pay the difference between the UK/EU and International fee rate. The closing date for applications is 20 April 2015, with a starting date of 1 July.
As a minimum requirement, applicants should have or expect to receive a 2:1 Bachelor's Degree (or equivalent qualification) in a relevant discipline such as Healthcare, Allied Health or Psychology.
This will be a qualitative research design to access the experience of patients and healthcare practitioners. The protocol for the research design will be developed by the student after enrolment, under the direction of the research supervisory team. Patient data collection will be undertaken at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.
