MS Society Doctoral Training Centre in Symptom Management

Closing Date: 07/02/2023

Funding available for an MS Society Doctoral Training Centre in symptom management, supporting multiple PhD fellowships to build capacity and retain graduates in the field.

The MS Society is the UK’s largest charity for people affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS), the most common disabling neurological condition affecting young adults. The Society is committed to bringing high standards of quality health and social care within reach of everyone affected by MS and to encourage and support medical and applied research.

The MS Society has launched a Call for applications for an MS Society Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) in the area of care and services research with a focus on symptom management and implementation into practice. Research must focus on non-drug approaches to managing and relieving the symptom(s) of MS and their implementation into practice to improve quality of life.

Funding is available for a minimum of three to four PhDs in cohort, with the objective that through linking within a DTC this will maximise the potential to build long-term capacity in the symptom management research workforce, to enable higher-quality, multi-disciplinary research with a greater focus on route to implementation.

While applicants have flexibility to be creative about the structure and delivery of the DTC, it must have a programmatic theme(s) and within it individual studentships should in some way be linked to a common aim, or utilise similar techniques or resources. Applications must be able to demonstrate the added value the Centre will bring over individual PhDs.
