School of Healthcare/ Cloth workers Research Studentships: 2013 Wounds / Continence: In Conjunction with the Clothworkers Centre for Textile Materials Innovation for Healthcare (CCTMIH) Initiative


We are looking to support top-quality UK/Home EU graduates to become leaders in shaping the health services of tomorrow. We have a vibrant postgraduate research culture, strong connections with industry and excellent facilities for PhD students. Our research is rated 6th in the UK for the quality of its research in Nursing and Midwifery (RAE2008).

As a result of recent collaboration with textiles researchers led by Professor Stephen Russell and generous support from The Worshipful Company of Clothworkers we have two funded PhD studentships in the area of Healthcare textiles. These have a focus on developing textiles that meet the needs of people affected by two major healthcare challenges, wounds and continence. These are both areas of health care practice where, nurses and patients work in partnership to address the impact of these long terms conditions on quality of life.

Application deadline 21 February, Interviews 18th March 2013.


Successful applicants will be awarded a package worth up to £16,800 per year, which includes the full payment of fees, a generous tax free bursary, and a training account.
