The Faculty of Health and Social Care at The Open University is seeking high-quality applications for funded full time studentships and self funded part time students, based in Milton Keynes.
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. Research draws on various methodologies and forms of analysis and much is based on multidisciplinary work across the social sciences, in particular drawing on medical sociology, critical psychology, anthropology and other critical, applied social sciences.
The Faculty has a lively post-graduate student community undertaking wide-ranging research both in the UK and internationally.
Studentships commence early 2013. Applicants must normally reside in the UK for the duration of the studentship.
