Full-time Research Studentships in Health and Social Care at The Open University

Faculty of Health & Social Care

Based in Milton Keynes


Applications are invited for a three year, funded studentship for
full-time study towards a postgraduate degree, to commence on 1 January 2007. The studentship is offered in partnership with the national
charity the Race Equality Foundation and is on the following topic:



Evaluating the impact of Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities; a leading parent education programme which has successfully engaged black and minority ethnic parents.



The Strengthening Families Strengthening Communities parent programme has successfully managed to engage a range of Asian, Caribbean and African parents, overcoming the barriers that many other programmes and agencies have faced. The impact of the programme is being evaluated through the analysis of pre-programme and post-programme questionnaires completed by parents. However, there is little work on the longer term impact of the SFSC programme. This studentship would allow a qualified student to gain a PhD through a unique quantitative or qualitative study of parenting styles and behaviour and the role of the SFSC in promoting the protective factors associated with better outcomes for children.





Candidates will hold a first or upper second class honours degree (or
equivalent) in a relevant subject and should preferably have a relevant
master's degree, or at least have completed research methods training at
master's level. In addition candidates will need to demonstrate an
understanding of or experience of working with black and minority ethnic
families. A research proposal is required as part of the application
process, for further information please refer to the guidance in the
further particulars.



For detailed information and how to apply go to www3.open.ac.uk/employment , or call Penny Wilkinson or Lesley Henderson (Faculty Research Office) on 01908 858373/654233 or email HSC-Research-Enquiries@open.ac.uk

Closing date: 12 noon on 14 November 2006.
Interview date: 17 November 2006.



Equal Opportunity is University Policy.
