Fully funded PhD Studentship Opportunities within the new flagship Healthy Lifespan Institute at the University of Sheffield

The Healthy Lifespan Institute at The University of Sheffield is an exciting new research initiative, dedicated to the understanding and prevention of multimorbidity, which is the presence of two or more chronic health conditions that create disability and poor quality of life in old age. We are taking a unique multidisciplinary approach that spans the biological and social sciences and strive to create new practices, policies and products across the whole life course that target multiple conditions and help people live longer, healthier and more independent lives.

As a student within the Healthy Lifespan Institute, you will be a valued and active member of the Institute and your work will be vital in contributing to our aims and helping to effect real change. You will be part of a wider multidisciplinary network of PhD students (see here) and will have the chance to influence and lead Institute activity, (i.e. sitting on Committees, representation at Exec, designing a programme of activities), to take part in seminars and events, and to meet leaders in the field.

Key Features:

Our studentships:

  • Nurture multidisciplinary and cross-faculty working
  • Offer external supervision and mentorship to expand student experience beyond the University
  • Provide the chance to be part of an active and engaged Institute PGR network with lots of opportunities to get involved with, and lead, Institute events and activities, and meet leaders in the field.

Students will be eligible for:

  • A full award paying fees and maintenance at the standard Research Council rates (stipend & fees).
  • Research Training Support Grants (see individual advertisements for details)

Important Requirements:

Students must start by October 2021.
