Two fully funded, full time, three-year PhD studentships are available in Warwick Medical School from September 2020. These include fees and monthly stipend based on the Research Councils recommended rate – for details see: www.ukri.org/skills/funding-for-research-training
The studentships are part of the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration West Midlands (ARC WM). ARC WM is a £9 million, five-year initiative which started in October 2019. We have a mission to create lasting and effective collaborations across health and social care organisations, universities and local authorities by using research to improve the services we deliver across the West Midlands and further afield. The increasing demand for social care and the vital role of public health are key to many of the ARC’s projects as we search for the best and most effective ways to maintain the health and independence of our/the population.
The students will be based in one of the ARC WM’s themes, which are described on the website: warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/med/about/centres/arc-wm/
Applications for these studentship are invited, focusing on one of the following topics:
