New PhD studentship opportunity: October 2023 start
In collaboration with the NIHR Greater Manchester Patient Safety Research Collaboration, we are pleased to be able to offer a funded PhD studentship at The University of Manchester on “Social Workers’ Implementation of National Guidelines with Looked-After Children Who Self-Harm.”
This mixed methods PhD will first explore current social work practice, including if/how current guidelines are used to guide practice. It will then use the behaviour change wheel  and stakeholder involvement  to develop an intervention to support social workers’ management of self-harm among looked-after children.
Applicants are expected to hold a minimum upper second-class undergraduate honours degree (or equivalent) in Psychology or cognate discipline.
A Masters degree in a relevant subject and/or experience in relation to social work and/or self-harm is desirable.
Studentship funding is for a duration of three years to commence in October 2023 and covers UK tuition fees and a stipend.
However, due to funding restrictions the studentship is only open to UK nationals.
