  Examining the extent to which planning moderates intention-behaviour relations for various health-related behaviours
  Prof P Norman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intention is the most proximal determinant of future behaviour in many models of health behaviour. However, there is a less-than-perfect relationship between people’s intention and their behaviour – the “intention-behaviour gap”.
  Behaviour change interventions to improve population health and well-being
  Dr K Cheung, Dr N Anokye, Dr S Pokhrel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Unhealthy lifestyles, such as smoking and physical inactivity, leads to conditions such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases, reducing health, quality of life, and burdens our society.

Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project the student will make new geodetic observations of transient behaviour of faults in the continents on a variety of temporal and spatial scales.
