  Music Therapy and Sustainable Health
  Prof H Odell-Miller
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Research area. Sustainable health systems. As a music therapy PhD student, you will join our growing internationally known clinical research team, which includes a programme of expanding research projects in the fields of dementia, adult mental health, and child and family work.
  Reimagining Entrepreneurship in Artisanal Brewing and Craft Beer: Is the Economy going ‘back’ to the future?
  Prof C Land
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Research Area. Entrepreneurship and applied innovation. This project will explore how craft beer and micro-breweries are changing the brewing industry and innovating products, processes and a wider paradigm of production and consumption.
  Storytelling, workflow and language in the fourth industrial revolution
  Dr S Patel
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Research area. Creative practice and creative industries. Emerging creative technologies are disrupting conventional narrative structures, including the way in which stories are found and told.
  The impact of music therapy on the physiological and psychological stress of being a carer for a partner with dementia.
  Prof H Odell-Miller, Dr E Lee, Dr A Street, Dr M Bristow
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Research Area. Music therapy. The incidence of dementia is increasing as our society ages. This has led to an increase in ‘informal’ caring, where partners provide the majority of the care for their loved one with dementia.
  The psychology of socially inclusive advertising
  Dr M Zawisza, Dr D McDermott, Dr H Petch
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Research Area. Social Inclusion and marginalised communities. This project is devoted to the topical issue of responsible socially inclusive advertising.
