This year, there will be a number of PhD studentships available via the School of Social Science, Education & Social Work; School of Nursing & Midwifery; School of Psychology; and School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences through Northern Ireland Department for Economy scholarships.
The benefits of studying and aligning your PhD studentship to CESI are that you will:
• Become part of a vibrant transdisciplinary research community within a leading Russell Group University
• Connect with the 40+ post-doctoral researchers who are based in CESI
• Attend CESI events as a Student Fellow
We are looking for studentship applications in the following areas:
• Mental health and wellbeing (including health education)
• Effective early prevention with parents and children
• Improving outcomes in school
• Improving health and wellbeing for young people
• Improving outcomes for looked after children and children on the edge of care
• Chronic illness and palliative care
Research proposals should use one of the following methodologies:
• Randomised controlled trial/experimental methodology and studies may be at the developmental, efficacy or effectiveness stage. This will include projects using innovative methodologies/interventions that could be developed further by a funded PhD scholarship.
• Systematic reviews which should be in a relevant area and plan to use a recognised approach e.g. Cochrane, Campbell, Best Evidence Encyclopaedia
• Research that informs the development of effective interventions. This could include a range of different methods from qualitative, to mixed methods, surveys and secondary analysis.
Closing date: 15 February 2019.
