Funding for a cancer related PhD studentship within Nursing/Midwifery or AHPs

RCBC (Research Building Capacity Collaboration) Wales and Tenovus are pleased to announce funding for a cancer related PhD studentship within Nursing/Midwifery or the Allied Health Professions to commence in October 2011. Applications are invited from eligible registered health professionals for this Tenovus funded studentship.
The PhD studentship will be full-time for three years. (A part-time application will be considered at a minimum of 2.5/3 days per-week commitment over 5 years).  Applicants will receive a bursary, fee payment and a contribution towards travel and research costs.
Appropriate professional registration is a requirement for the studentship.
Applicants should note that Tenovus helps fund research that:
  • works with communities to develop programmes that promote healthy living, early detection and screening
  • learns from the experiences and opinions of people who have been affected by cancer to develop new ways to care and support for others who have been affected by the disease
  • gives health professionals working in the field the opportunity to develop new ways to treat and support cancer patients and families before, during and after their treatment
We are looking for proposals which demonstrate impact on education or practice and with thorough dissemination plans.
Applicants can apply to any of the RCBC Wales collaborating institutions (see website below for further details). Recruitment for the PhD studentship will be managed by RCBC Wales at the University of Glamorgan with input from all collaborating institutions and Tenovus. The appointment will be made with one of the established research groups within the Departments and Schools of Nursing/Midwifery and Allied Health Professions across RCBC Wales collaborating institutions. Applicants are welcome to apply to more than one institution. Some institutions may specify project titles with outline proposals and for information about any specific opportunities, please contact the relevant institutions directly.
The successful applicant will be encouraged to be resident in Wales for the duration of the award.
