Overview and project synopsis
The University of Leicester is ranked within the top 1% of universities worldwide and has an
international reputation for excellence in teaching and research. Together our staff and students are
discovering innovative ways to change the world for the better and there has never been a more
exciting time to join us.
We are inviting applications for a full-time PhD studentship, which offers the opportunity to undertake
a multidisciplinary PhD in collaboration with psychologists and criminologists from the University.
The three-year studentship includes a full UK/EU tuition fee waiver, as well as providing an annual
stipend of £14,553 to cover living expenses while undertaking the project.
The position is available from September 2017, but there may be some scope for an earlier start date
to reflect individual circumstances.
The project itself will focus on identifying why offenders do and do not engage with rehabilitation
programmes in prison, hospital and community settings. This will help to prevent offenders from
dropping out of treatment, thereby reducing the significantly negative impact this has on staff morale,
the cost-effectiveness of forensic services and on offenders themselves.
