The Centre for the Humanities and Health, King’s College London, is now inviting applications for three PhD Studentships commencing in 2010.

Applicants are invited to consider the six strands of research already underway in the Centre for the Humanities and Health and to situate their research proposals
a) In one or more strands, or
b) Across strands, or
c) In another theme or research area within the field of the Medical Humanities.
