The University of Exeter’s College of Medicine and Health is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in September 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. For eligible students the studentship will cover UK/EU tuition fees plus an annual tax-free stipend of at least £15,009 for 3 years full-time, or pro rata for part-time study. The student would be based in the Institute of Health Research in the College of Medicine and Health at the St Luke’s Campus in Exeter.

Project Description:

This PhD will apply mixed methods integration techniques at the level of the individual participant to existing data or findings from RCTs involving both quantitative and qualitative research. It will test the proposition that such techniques can yield new insights that might, for example, be useful for understanding variation in outcomes, the mechanism by which interventions have an impact, and identifying ways of tailoring interventions to patient preference and type. 

This award provides annual funding to cover UK/EU tuition fees, a tax-free stipend and support for research costs. For students who pay UK/EU tuition fees the award will cover the tuition fees in full, plus at least £15,009 per year tax-free stipend. Students who pay international tuition fees are eligible to apply, but should note that the award will only provide payment for part of the international tuition fee and no stipend.
