Dear list members,

Could you please further circulate this message to relevant contacts?

A full-time PhD studentship/ Graduate Teaching Assistant for a research project titled "Risk factors for Voice Problems in Teachers", is available at Birmingham City University (BCU). The studentship includes full payment of fees (£3,996 for 2014/15) and a bursary for living expenses (£13,863 for 2014/15).

Project Synopsis: A large proportion of teachers will contract a voice disorder at some point during their career. This project aims to establish the risk factors for voice disorders in primary and secondary teachers and to build a predictive model of such factors, including environmental, lifestyle, medical and psychological factors. The findings of this project will inform strategies aimed at preventing voice disorders.

Further details can be found at the website of the BCU Graduate School: http://www.bcu.ac.uk/health/research/graduate-school/study-with-us/gtastudentships.
The project will be supervised by Dr. Wouter Jansen and myself. Please note that the closing date for applications is 20 June.
