Please draw this opportunity to the attention of any excellent Masters students who are looking for PhD opportunities to study emotions and health.
This PhD studentship on medicines as emotional objects is funded by the QMUL Life Sciences initiative and is a collaboration between Dr Deborah Swinglehurst’s NIHR-funded project, Addressing the Polypharmacy Challenge in Older People with Multimorbidity and our Wellcome-funded project, Living with Feeling: Emotional Health in History, Philosophy and Experience.
The successful student will benefit from existing networks and events associated with these projects. The PhD will be jointly supervised by Dr Deborah Swinglehurst and Professor Thomas Dixon.
We are looking for a highly motivated graduate with a background (including a relevant Master’s degree) in a relevant social science or history. The project is interdisciplinary and an explicit aim of the project is the integration of knowledge gleaned from both social science and history disciplines.
The application deadline is 31 August 2017.
