PhD in Rural Health

The Welsh Government has recently been developing a Rural Health Plan and is in the process of starting the process of implementation. In parallel to this the University of Wales has established a Scholar programme – one of these Scholars will have a responsibility for Rural Health and will be based with the Institute of Rural Health and the University of Swansea.

The Scholar will have a research role and will be involved with the evaluation of a number of the rural health projects established by the plan. Instead of the Rural Scholar being answerable to a commercial company (as stated in the advert), he/she will be answerable to to the Rural Health Plan Implementation Board and the University.

The Scholar will receive a bursary and expenses. He/she will be expected to write up their PhD at the end of the three years.

For details, see the advert.  Note that whilst the closing date for expressions of interest was in June, it may still be possible to apply – contact the office for more information.
