Research in Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry at Process and outcomes of patient and public involvement (PPI).PhD Studentship.


“Process and outcomes of patient and public involvement (PPI) in research: a natural experiment conducted through PenCLAHRC”: PCMD-GS-0042

This Studentship is based at Exeter.

The Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry with its parent Institutions, the Universities of Exeter and Plymouth, are seeking to attract PhD candidates of outstanding ability to join their exciting and rapidly expanding programme of internationally rated research.
As part of our new developments and our commitment to research excellence, applications are invited from suitably qualified graduates, 2:1 or above, for a PhD studentship. International students must also have IELTS [International English Language Testing System] score of 7 and above (or equivalent qualification).

PPI in health research is required by many research funding bodies but evidence of the impact of PPI is difficult to find. This PhD will involve tracking the progress of a range of research projects with differing forms of PPI. A number of research projects (maximum 10) will also be selected for in-depth case study analysis. Data sources will include interviews, observations and documentary material. The data will be used to develop a model of the impact of PPI in research and to draw up recommendations about the most effective ways of carrying out PPI.

The studentship will be very suitable for someone with a social sciences background (first or master`s degree) who is interested in a career as a qualitative researcher.

Start date: 1 October 2011

Funding Notes
The stipend will be £13,590 (based on full time 10/11 rate). Tuition fees will be paid at the home rate. Candidates from countries outside the European Uni0n will be liable for the difference between `home student fees` and `international student fees`. If you wish to be considered for this studentship you must confirm that you able to pay the international portion of the fee. For the 10/11 academic year this is £9200 but is likely to increase slightly each year. If you are selected you will be required to provide financial assurances.

Germany again provides scholarships this time for civil engineering at the Bauhaus University.

Bauhaus-University Weimar in Germany offer Ten PhD Positions.

Study Subject:
Civil Engineering ,Structural and Soil Mechanics/Dynamics ,Materials Science ,Applied Mathematics & Computer Science

Employer: Bauhaus-Universit├Ąt Weimar
Level: PhD

The overall aim of the Research training group is to assess the reliability, safety and robustness of numerical models. This evaluation considers a wide range of aspects and models. This includes, but is not restricted to, models that describe loads or the material and structural behavior of systems in structural engineering. Of particular interest are the interactions of these models in complex systems. Their influence on the quality of models of complex coupled systems is to be determined.

We see ourselves as an international research training group. Very good English skills are a prerequisite for internal communication, for publications in scientific journals, and for a mandatory stay abroad, serving the scientific exchange with our international cooperation partners. Good German skills are additionally expected from international applicants.

In order to allow a fast realization of models, of couplings, and of evaluation methods, command of one or several programming languages (e.g. C/C++, Java, Python, Matlab) is of advantage.

Scholarship Application Deadline: May 15, 2011
