PhD Studentship - Living longer, but are they healthier? Health comparisons between three UK national birth cohorts

Qualification type: PhD
Funding amount: £16,296 as well as having tuition fees covered
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students
Hours: Full Time
Closing date: 3 August 2016

Further details about the vacancy and how to apply are available on Jobs.ac.uk website

The PhD studentship is funded for three years from October 2016 and is on the topic of whether living longer means living healthier.

The study will use the latest extensions within the generalised latent variable modelling framework to derive reliable equivalent measures in the three birth cohort studies that are managed by the CLS in order to enable valid between-cohort comparisons of health and social outcomes. These comparisons will provide unique insights on whether the additional years of life that the most recent cohorts have gained (and stand to gain) years of good health or years of disability and frailty.

This studentship will provide a suitably qualified graduate with an excellent opportunity to gain experience of generalised latent variable modelling in the context of the British Birth Cohort Studies. The exact focus of the studentship will depend on the background and interests of the successful candidate and the precise measures to be harmonised will then be decided in discussion with the supervisors.

 

PhD Studentship - Using para-data on interviewer calls to advance understanding of non-response in longitudinal surveys

Qualification type: PhD
Funding amount: £16,296 as well as having tuition fees covered
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students
Hours: Full Time
Closing date: 3 August 2016

Further details about the vacancy and how to apply are available on Jobs.ac.uk website

The PhD studentship is funded by for three years from October 2016 and is on the topic of the factors which influence non-response bias in survey responses.

The study will be based on the analysis of call record data from the fifth and/or sixth wave of the MCS and/or the 2012 wave of BCS70. This will allow for evaluation of the impact of extended fieldwork efforts on non-response bias and examination of the success of targeting fieldwork resources.

To understand the effectiveness of extended field efforts, and their impact on non-response bias, a number of scenarios could be developed, each representing a fieldwork management strategy which could have been adopted, but would have been less extensive than that actually used. An additional output of the studentship would be a documented and cleaned dataset representing the call record paradata, made available to the research community via the UK Data Service.
