Project description: Motorcyclists are one of the most vulnerable road user groups in England with an average of 6 deaths and 94 serious injuries per week (Department of Transport, 2015). Using research to develop an effective, evidence based injury prevention strategy that can be used nationally & internationally to reduce the incidence of motorcycle collisions will reduce the number of killed or critically injured motorcyclists across the world.

This study will inform local and national injury prevention strategies and we anticipate a minimum of three academic papers for submission to leading injury prevention and trauma journals such as Injury Prevention, International Journal of Injury Control and Safety Promotion and the Journal of Trauma and Treatment. 

What does the funded studentship include?

Funded candidates will receive a maintenance grant of £15,000 per annum (unless otherwise specified), to cover their living expenses and have their fees waived for 48 months. In addition, research costs, including field work and conference attendance, will be met.

Funded Studentships are open to both UK/EU and International students unless otherwise specified.
