The successful candidate will join an active research team working on applying research findings on domestic violence to inform the development of appropriate services for victims.
Candidates can propose a specific research topic within the overall theme of the studentship, which should be justified in relation to gaps in practice and research knowledge. Research proposals are especially invited that explore the experiences and service needs of groups which are hard-to-reach and under-represented in domestic violence referrals and use of support.
The successful candidate will use qualitative methods to explore the life histories of victims of domestic violence in England to contribute to the evidence base informing best practice in public health responses to domestic violence.
Applicants from practitioners (for example a background in nursing, allied health, social work, medicine) or from sociology, health and social care and criminology or similar, are particularly welcome.
Applicants should have a first or upper second class honours degree or equivalent in a relevant area. Applicants with a relevant Masters are particularly welcome. Applicants should possess excellent report writing and English language communication skills and an ability to work to deadlines.
An application of a 1-page CV and 1-page covering letter including a brief insight into the research topic area should be e-mailed to Maureen Young ( [email protected] ). Please quote project ID in the subject line of the email.
