  Dr N Peek, Dr B Brown, Dr S Cheraghi-Sohi
Applications accepted all year round
This position will remain open until a suitable candidate is found. A formal application must be submitted to be considered. The Studentship is expected to commence from 1 October 2018 but a January 2019 start dates will be considered.
  Developing a questionnaire to assesses patients’ experiences of audiology services
  Prof K Munro, Prof C Armitage
Applications accepted all year round
There is growing interest in measuring patients’ experiences of clinical services. This can be used to measure quality, evaluate quality improvement initiatives and compare services.
  Encouraging retention in clinical trials (ERIC)
  Dr S Cotterill, Dr S Peters, Prof A Vail
Applications accepted all year round
Clinical trials often require longer term follow-up measures, collected months or years after completion of the intervention. Such trials struggle to retain participants, leading to.
  Evaluating new technologies for promotion of healthy active ageing: using smartphone apps and sensors to promote activity- acceptability and adherence measurement?
  Prof C Todd, Dr E Boulton, Dr H Hague
Applications accepted all year round
Health apps, and wearable technologies such as smartwatches and other body worn sensors connected to smartphones or other recording and transmitting systems, are becoming increasingly common.
  Genomic analysis of antibiotic resistance in Neisseria meningitidis
  Prof J McInerney, Prof J P Derrick
Applications accepted all year round
Neisseria meningitidis (the meningococcus) is a leading global cause of meningitis and septicaemia. With the exception of the sulphonamides, high-level antimicrobial resistance is rare in meningococci.
