Applicants should have a good first degree (2:1 or above) in a relevant discipline and a Masters degree in a related discipline is desirable. Funding is available for three years to cover fees for PhD registration (2018/19 home/EU rates: £4,260) and a research studentship stipend of currently £14,777 per annum for 2018/19. Non-EU students would be required to pay the balance (currently approximately £11,200 per annum) of the overseas fees themselves. The post will be shared between the internationally renowned institute for Primary Care and Health Sciences (iPCHS), and the Keele’s Medical School Education Research Group (MERG).
Accurate assessment of the clinical skills of trainee healthcare professionals is vital for both patient safety and educational development and fairness. Current assessment approaches rely on observation and judgement by professionals but are limited by problematic variability in scores. This PhD will contribute to the growing field of “Assessor Cognition” in medical education. Several studies have shown that recently-observed performances influence examiners’ judgements, and may influence their attention. This has lead to pragmatic suggestions that observing “benchmarking” videos prior to examining may direct assessors’ attention and result in more consistent judgements. Despite this, little prior work has investigated whether or how benchmarking influences assessors’ attention and what impact this has on their judgements.
The programme of study will use an initial qualitative think-aloud based approach to study the influence of benchmarking performances on assessors’ attention. It will then use experimental methods to test the influence of mediating factors. Finally, in either the later stages of the PhD or in follow-up work, it will trial an intervention based on benchmarking in the context of a medical student Objective Structured Clinical Exam (OSCE). As a result the PhD’s findings are anticipated to directly inform current practice, and be of interest to national and international audiences and policy makers. The candidate will be supported, but given considerable latitude, to develop the research approach in terms of theory, focus and methods.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a practically-minded Physicist, Engineer or Biologist with an interest in modern digital optical microscopy to pursue a PhD qualification in optical microscope control engineering. As part of a wider programme in digital optical microscopy, we are currently developing the Warwick Open Source Microscope (WOSM, http://wosmic.org). The WOSM uses a compact optical design that is exceptionally physically stable, opening up new opportunities for ultra high resolution optical microscopy. The most innovative aspect of the WOSM is its control scheme.
The entire microscope is controlled from a web browser via a local microcontroller, allowing remote operation and allowing several microscopes to be controlled from a single web browser. The immediate opportunity is for a student to take on the work of implementing Rasberry Pi integration.
The WOSM project website will serve software, data and community-based support for both hardware and software. There are opportunities in implementing this, also.
More Detail: Currently the WOSM microcontroller (PIC32mx 80MHz) serves the microscope control web-pages and controls the microscope timing. To improve system latency this project will begin by moving the web control front-end to a Raspberry Pi. The student will also assist in the development of an ultra-stable laser tweezers WOSM. This will be a microscope for making recordings from single motor protein molecules (measuring piconewton forces and nanometer scale movements of single molecules).
