PhD studentship with Nottingham University Business School’s Centre for Health Innovation, Leadership & Learning (CHILL), in collaboration with NIHR CLAHRC East Midlands, and the NIHR Greater Manchester Patient Safety Translational Research Centre.
Are you interested in a undertaking a PhD to investigate how the safety of care and recovery can be improved for people moving between secure locations and/or the community?
We are looking for an enthusiastic student who will work with an inter-disciplinary supervisory team to apply advanced social science theory and methods to carry out this ground-breaking research on the safety of care transitions. It is anticipated that the student will refine the focus on the study with their supervisors, and that it will likely engage with conceptual debates related to inter-organisational working, professional boundaries, and/or knowledge sharing. In addition, the work will draw upon theories of deviance, recovery, rehabilitation, and risk. Through carrying out research with professionals and stakeholders the research will look to develop innovative solutions to improve care quality.
This funded PhD will commence from 1st October 2018. A yearly stipend at current RCUK rates (£14,777), plus UK/EU student tuition fees (£4,300), is available to the successful applicant. Closing date for applications is 25th May 2018.
