3 MSc (By Research) Studentships

The National Institute for Health Research Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care North West Coast (NIHR CLAHRC NWC) brings together NHS organisations, local authorities and academic leaders from the Universities of Central Lancashire, Liverpool and Lancaster to accelerate the translation of research findings into service improvements and maximise the potential for applied health research within the partner organisations to improve care.

The key focus of the NIHR CLAHRC NWC’s applied health research and implementation programme is to find effective and innovative ways to tackle health inequalities across the region.

The NIHR CLAHRC NWC is now inviting applications for three, full-time (1 year) MSc by Research studentships to start in October 2017 at the University of Central Lancashire.

The project titles are:

  • Exploring potential interventions to minimise the effects of age, frailty and socioeconomic status (as determinants of health) in older people with learning disabilities
  • The physiological and biomechanical effects of a short term e-bikes cycling intervention in Stroke survivors
  • Exploring perceptions and health status when taking part in a 3 month e-bikes cycling intervention in Stroke survivors

We are looking for exceptional individuals to complete these MScs (by research) which are targeted at reducing health inequalities.   Suitable candidates should have at least an upper-second class (or equivalent) undergraduate degree in a relevant health, social care, or pertinent methodological subject.   Candidates should also be able to demonstrate the following skills: communication, presentation/writing, IT, time-management and the ability to be self-motivated/work alone.

Full details of the MSc topics can be obtained by e-mailing: clahrcnwc@uclan.ac.uk

A one year bursary of £5000 will be provided (subject to satisfactory progress) which will cover tuition fees at the Home/EU rate (£4195) and research costs.  Due to funding restrictions, the studentship is open to UK/EU nationals only.  Suitable candidates should hold at least a UK Bachelor honours degree at upper-second class level (or equivalent qualification) in a relevant health, social care, or pertinent methodological subject.  EU applicants will also require an overall IELTS score of 7 (or equivalent qualification).
