PhD Studentship: The Impact of a Stoma on Appearance and Body Image: Development of an intervention to support individuals with a stoma

Social Sciences & Social Care - UK Jobs

Project Title: The Impact of a Stoma on Appearance and Body Image: Development of an intervention to support individuals with a stoma
The expected start date of this studentship is 1 January 2023. 
The closing date for applications is 31 October 2022.  
Ref 2223-JAN-HAS18
About the Studentship
This is an exciting opportunity to conduct a funded full time PhD on the topic of appearance and body image for individuals with a stoma.  The successful candidate will benefit from the opportunities presented by being part of a thriving internationally renowned university research centre (the Centre for Appearance Research, CAR focused on psychosocial aspects of appearance, including those associated with appearance-altering conditions. CAR has a strong, vibrant postgraduate community, and links with relevant support organisations. The supervisory team will include Dr Pippa Tollow (Senior Research Fellow at CAR/Senior Lecturer in Health Psychology), Prof Diana Harcourt (Professor of Appearance and Health Psychology and Co-Director of CAR), and Dr Heidi Williamson (Associate Professor in Applied Health Research) who all have experience and expertise in appearance research. The PhD will also benefit from support from staff at Welland Medical Limited (, who are funding this PhD in partnership with the University of the West of England.
A stoma is a surgically created opening on the surface on the abdomen, which diverts the flow of faeces or urine to exit the body into a colostomy, urostomy or ileostomy bag. Stoma surgery may be required by individuals of all ages and there are many reasons why somebody may require a stoma. Existing research suggests that stoma-forming surgery and the resulting altered appearance can have a negative impact on mood, quality of life, and body image. However, further research is needed to investigate this experience and the support needs of adults with a stoma in the UK. In addition, there are currently limited evidence-based psychosocial interventions available for those who experience negative body image and appearance-related issues after stoma surgery, and little information publicly available for patients. This PhD will investigate the experiences and support needs of adults with a stoma in the UK, as well as developing a psychosocial intervention to support quality of life of adults living with a stoma, with a focus on appearance and body image
The precise details of the PhD will be finalised by the successful student in collaboration with the supervisory team. This is intended to be a mixed methods PhD and will offer an excellent training opportunity to develop the specific research skills and expertise of an early career researcher looking to establish a career in the field of health psychology and/or visible difference research.

Funding details
The studentship is available from January 2023 for a period of three years, subject to satisfactory progress and includes a tax exempt stipend, which is currently £17,668 per annum.
