University of Kent PhD Scholarship | Fully Funded

The University of Kent is offering a scholarship for a 3-year PhD to research one or more key topics in the field of adult social care. The scholarship aims to develop applied health and social care research across the region for the benefit of patients and the public.

A range of support is available, from more conventional care home and home care services to more innovative forms of person-centred support, drawing on the support of the local community, involving new technology and housing solutions. Social care in England is often delivered by private and voluntary sector organisations, in markets, with a mix of public and private funding.

PhD offers the chance for research to make a real contribution from a variety of disciplines – including, for example, economics, psychology, social policy, health sciences and implementation sciences – and on a variety of topics. The programme also includes cross-cutting themes that relate to social care, including digital innovation, co-production, public health, and health and social care economics.
