Dear Socnetters,

Here are details of a shortlisted PhD project, applying Multiple Membership Multiple Classification (MMMC) models to health data for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The student would be based at the University of Glasgow. This studentship is open to candidates of any nationality – UK, EU, or International.
The studentship is interdisciplinary between Social Sciences and Public Health. If you are interested, or know anyone that might be interested, please contact me.

Please note: this is one of 24 PhD projects shortlisted under the "Lord Kelvin Adam Smith” (LKAS) studentship scheme at the University of Glasgow.
Quoting directly from the LKAS web page: "Of the 24 potential projects advertised only 10 scholarships will be awarded based on the quality of both the applicant and the project."

The supervision team is:

1st Mark Tranmer, Social Sciences, University of Glasgow.
2nd Laurence Moore, SPHSU (Public Health Unit), University of Glasgow.
3rd Mark McCann, SPHSU (Public Health Unit), University of Glasgow.

The link below should take you to directly the description of the studentship:

I hope this will help keep developments in MMMC models for networks moving, given the substantive research questions that are of interest with these data - some of which are cross-sectional and some of which are longitudinal.

All the best,


Mark Tranmer
