EPSRC funded PhD Studentship in Digital Civics (Public Health and Social Care)
The EPSRC have fully funded four-year doctoral studentships in Digital Civics in Public Health or Social Care available (commencing September 2017) and are seeking applicants with a passion for civic life, an interest in how digital technologies can be used to support citizens and communities, and an undergraduate or masters level education in public health, health services, social science or a related subject.
The CDT in Digital Civics brings together a wealth of expertise at Newcastle University and is a collaboration between five of the University’s leading research centres, including the Institute for
Health & Society (public health and social care research) and Open Lab (human-computer interaction and ubiquitous computing research). Doctoral trainees will be supervised by a cross-disciplinary committee of academics from these centres, and will be expected to undertake projects related to at least one of the key Digital Civics research themes:
• digital public health
• digital social care
• digital community learning
• digital local democracy
