ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership funds PhD to explore the impact of disability onset on individual wellbeing in the UK

John Poole will join Cardiff Business School as a PhD student from October 2018 to work with Professors Melanie Jones and Victoria Wass using longitudinal data to explore how the impact of disability develops during the life course, the extent to which it persists and the factors affecting persistence, including the timing of onset, the role of disability benefit income and the impact of (and on) other household members. This collaborative PhD is funded by the ESRC and is in partnership with Disability Rights UK. The focus will be on disability acquired during working-age, experienced by more than 80% of all working-age disabled people, and will extend beyond employment to more comprehensively explore the impact on income, deprivation, consumption, financial situation (e.g. debt and savings) and subjective wellbeing.
