PhD Studentship - Psychology - University of Birmingham, UK

A qualitative study of British South Asian Carers' views of their Children with Developmental Disabilities

A collaborative studentship provided by Wolverhampton Primary Care Trust and the School of Psychology, University of Birmingham.

Funding is available for a three-year PhD studentship from October 2008, for a largely qualitative research project which will involve close collaboration between the School of Psychology at the University of Birmingham and the Wolverhampton Primary Care Trust. The proposed research will seek to develop an understanding of the views of South Asian parents about their children, and about their developmental disabilities. A detailed, culturally-sensitive, and systematic account of these views will allow us to understand their role in shaping the care of children. The project will allow us to better understand parents access to, and interactions with, service systems. As a result, we will be able to help South Asian carers to use services more effectively, and for services to adapt more effectively to the needs of this client group.

Research supervision will be provided by Dr John Rose and Dr Michael Larkin in the Clinical Psychology team. Dr Rose has a track record of conducting and supervising research in the field of developmental disability; Dr Larkin has a track record on conducting and supervising qualitative and phenomenological research in the area of culture and psychology. The successful candidate will join a 5* RAE-rated Psychology department with excellent facilities, established research groups, and substantial external funding. The School supports around 250 postgraduate students in professional training and research degrees.

The studentship requires an Honours degree in Psychology (2:1 or above); Enthusiasm for research, and commitment to producing and disseminating excellent qualitative research; Commitment to the wellbeing of people with learning disability, and their families; Good communication and organisational skills. Prior knowledge of qualitative or phenomenological psychology would be a considerable advantage, as would fluency in at least one South Asian language.

The studentship will be at the basic UK research council rate (expected GBP 12,600 per annum) to provide support over the three-year period, and will cover tuition fees. The student may also be eligible to contribute to our paid Teaching Assistant programme.

Application


For more information, and informal discussion about the studentship, please contact Dr. John Rose (j.l.rosebham.ac.uk) or Dr Michael Larkin (m.larkinbham.ac.uk). To obtain the Schools Research Studies brochure and an application form, please contact Ms. Parveen Chahal (p.k.chahalbham.ac.uk).

The closing date for applications is 30th June, 2008.

PhD Studentship - New Approaches to Environmental Pollution Control - University College London, UK

Approximately half of all the NOx released into the atmosphere is believed to be from vehicle emissions. NOx emissions cause acid rain, smog and respiratory diseases. Engines must run colder and less efficiently to minimise their formation. Both Otto and Diesel engines produce NOx which is removed by catalysts but for this to work, Otto engines must run at stoichiometric conditions and Diesel engines run under oxidising conditions, so no commercial NOx control catalyst is available. This project takes a new approach to NOx management using high temperature electrochemistry in which, if it is successful, the pollutant will be destroyed close to source.

We seek a candidate who is prepared to take a pioneering attitude to research, to learn new skills and techniques and to make a commitment to three years of challenging scientific research. The successful applicant for this position will join an active interdisciplinary research group in the Department of Chemistry and will work in close collaboration with the Department of Chemical Engineering at UCL.

Applicants must hold at least a 2.1 degree (or equivalent) in chemical engineering or chemistry or a related subject. The stipend for PhD students at UCL starts at GBP 14,988 and the studentship will start 22 September 2008 and will be for 4 years.


Application

Postdoctoral Position in Statistics, Institut Francais du Petrole, France

Postdoctoral Position
Institut Français du Pétrole (IFP), Solaize, France

Subject : Response Surfaces under constraints

Because physical models are not predictive enough in motor calibration design, to represent engine exhausts, one has to resort to response surfaces techniques. Experimental data are fitted by means of non linear regression, locally when the torque and the engine speed are both fixed, or globally when everything vary.

To check the results, engineers rely on their expertise. For example, locally, CO2 emissions should decrease when the main injection timing (AVI) and the fuel injection pressure (PRAIL) increase. Globally, constraints coming from physical limitations and considerations become more and more stringent.

However, traditional regression techniques do not guarantee that all the constraints will be satisfied. In the case of CO2, one should observe monotony constraints, i.e. the response should increase or decrease monotonically when AVI and PRAIL vary. Similarly, maximum or minimum values are not guaranteed to be respected, since the calculated response can oscillate between the fitting points.

From the end of 90's, some new methods have been proposed to alleviate these limitations. A bibliographical review shows that many different techniques have been proposed, based on available regression techniques. Smoothing splines have been used, as well as generalized additive models, krigging or wavelets. Some of these developments are available through internet.

The goal of this post-doctoral study is to propose strategies to tackle these problems, to test and use the new techniques that have to be developed, and to apply them to the case of responses surfaces in the field of motor calibration. Coding will be done in MATLAB. Expected difficulties concern the high dimension of the regressors space, as well as the calculation time which has to stay manageable.

Education and qualification:

PhD in applied mathematics or in statistics, solid background in experimental design and response surfaces methodology. Practice of a programming language like MATLAB, C or FORTRAN.

Location: Institut Français du Pétrole (IFP, www.ifp.fr) at Solaize, near Lyon
Duration: 12 to 18 month
Salary: ~2862Euro /month (+ 474Euro /month for lodging expenses for foreigners coming from foreign universities only)

PhD Position - Physics of Nanostructures, Tyndall National Institute, Ireland

A new group (Epitaxy and Physics of Nanostructures) was established in January 2007 at Tyndall National Institute (http://www.tyndall.ie) under an SFI (http://www.sfi.ie/home/index.asp) Principal Investigator grant. The group is led by Dr. E. Pelucchi. The research will concentrate on the epitaxy, optical properties and spectroscopy of site controlled Pyramidal quantum dots and wires [1] and on their extension to telecommunication wavelengths.


This novel approach to site controlled quantum wires and dots (QD) growth has been pioneered by Dr Pelucchi in the group of Prof Kapon in EPFL, using MOVPE growth on a pre-patterned substrate to achieve reproducible QD emission spectra with, for example, the lowest inhomogeneous broadening to date for a QD epitaxial field. The high level of growth control makes such nanostructures ideal candidates for studies and devices related to quantum communication/information processing (efficient single photon emission being a good example), enabling the achievement of atom-like energy states whose energy and electronic wavefunction can be engineered at the nanoscale level by acting on a few parameters, so that the dots can, in principle, be individually and unambiguously (optically and electrically) addressed and controlled.

3. Effects of eradication of Salmonella Dublin from cattle herds.

Job description
With reference to the project manager, the work of the PhD fellow will consist mainly of duties in connection with research and development within research fields mentioned in the following areas:

In Denmark a surveillance program for Salmonella Dublin in cattle herds has been running since 2002. The program provides unique data to assess change in prevalence over time in the whole country and good data on each herd status for dairy herds and to some extend non-dairy herds. In 2006, it was decided to start an eradication campaign for Salmonella Dublin and the goal is to eradicate the infection from Denmark by 2014. There are about 700 infected herds in Denmark today and many of these will be trying to intervene against spread of the infection in their herd and try to eliminate it from the premises over a period of 1-3 years.

There are good experiences and tools available to aid in the eradication strategies in Denmark and to follow the epidemiology of the infection in the intervention herds. However, there is a need for a better understanding of the economical, health and welfare effects of strategies that lead to elimination of the infection in the herds. Such knowledge may lead to more cost-effective intervention strategies and may provide decision support based on animal health economics for or against eradication of infections, such as Salmonella Dublin.

The work in this PhD fellowship will be performed at KU LIFE in close collaboration with researchers at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences (FAS), Research Centre Foulum, Aarhus University (AU), who are working on incorporating the effects of eradication of Salmonella Dublin from dairy herds into an existing simulation model (SimHerd-model). The PhD fellow will mainly be expected to be doing research based on field work and the use of register data from real life cattle herds. This includes interviews with Danish cattle farmers, herd visits and epidemiological analyses to assess epidemiological, health, welfare and economical parameters of relevance in relation to intervention against Salmonella Dublin. The PhD fellow will also have the possibility to learn about simulation modelling of infectious diseases and animal health economics models as part of the project.

The appointee should have qualifications within the following areas:
Ability and desire to work with cattle and Danish cattle farmers
Experience or strong interest in epidemiology (including disease control, modelling of infectious diseases) and/or animal health economics, questionnaire studies or detailed quantitative studies
Good communicative skills
A desire to work with many different people in the cattle field
A positive attitude and good interpersonal skills
