3 Year PhD Studentship with the Centre for Death & Society: Care and cost at the end of life

Applicants are invited for a full-time PhD, University studentship to support and work in the Department of Social and Policy Sciences, alongside the Institute for Policy Research (IPR) and Centre for Death and Society (CDAS).

This studentship is associated with Dr Kate Woodthorpe's research on families, finances and funerals, and will focus on intergenerational relationships between adult children and their parents in organising, and paying, for end of life care and associated expenses. Applicants are welcome from a range of social science backgrounds including sociology, social policy, social work, gerontology, cultural studies, gender studies, anthropology, and economics, and will need to demonstrate a working knowledge of qualitative methods and an awareness of the policy implications of end of life care issues.

The studentship is fully funded and will cover full-time tuition fees at the Home/EU rate (non-EU candidates will need supplementary funding) for 3 years and is available for an October 2013 start. The studentship includes a stipend of at least £13,726 (2013/14 rate) per year as well as a £1,000 training budget per year for each of the three years.

Closing date: 12 noon, 23rd May 2013
