Stipend: Starts at £14,553 per annum plus approved expenses. All students will also receive a maximum contribution towards their individual tuition fees that is equivalent to the Home/EU student fee in each year of registration

The University of Hertfordshire invites applications for a PhD student to join our Hertfordshire Knowledge Exchange Partnership (HKEP) scheme, which is 1-year industrial placement followed by a 3-year PhD studentship funded jointly by the European Regional Development Fund, Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership and HENRY.

HENRY is seeking to extend its behaviour change approach to supporting teenagers to adopt healthier lifestyles and improve their long-term physical and emotional wellbeing, through changes in physical activity and nutritional education.

The associate will develop an understanding of the HENRY approach and become a trained deliverer by working with HENRY training and development team to develop the programme and co-deliver it during feasibility study.

The project will progress to testing the feasibility of a new teenage programme, that will be refined and rolled out on a wider scale.
