The Faculty of Health and Social Care at The Open University is offering funded full-time studentships and self-funded part-time students. The Faculty’s research focuses on the following areas: ageing and later life; reproductive and sexual health; death and dying; living with a disability and/or long term condition; children and young people; parenting and families. Applications are encouraged in a range of research projects outlined at: http://www.open.ac.uk/health-and-social-care/main/research/post-grad-research/student-community
Their research draws on various methodologies and forms of analysis and much is largely multidisciplinary work across the social sciences, in drawing on medical sociology, critical psychology, anthropology and other critical, applied social sciences.
Studentships commence October 2015. Applicants must normally reside in the UK for the duration of their registration.
All students are supported to develop a range of academic and other research skills. In addition, full-time students will be offered opportunities to develop experience in teaching in the faculty.
