DocBike offers unique PhD into Motorcycle Injury Prevention
Working with Bournemouth University, the DocBike charity is offering an individual a phenomenal opportunity to really get to grips with why motorcyclists die and what we can do about it!
Following a literature review of the work that has been done to date, the successful student will be supported by Bournemouth University and the Dr Ian Mew from the DocBike charity to evaluate how we engage with motorcyclists that are most at risk, whether what we are doing actually makes any difference and how we can work more effectively to save the lives of motorcyclists by helping prevent them being involved in a collision in the first place.
As an air ambulance critical care consultant, Dr Ian Mew has seen too many times how picking up the pieces is not the answer. “We need to get to the motorcyclists before they crash” is one of his regular quotes. It is hoped that this ground-breaking research will help us understand how to do this most effectively to make a real difference, saving many more lives than trying patch people together after they crash.
The PhD studentship is a fully funded, 3 year full time placement. Anyone from across the world may apply! Closing date for applications is 5th May. For more information and to apply, please go to: bournemouth.ac.uk/study/courses/phd-studentship-motorcycle-injury-prevention
