Can you help with a research project at the University of Exeter that requires Armed Forces Veterans?
The University of Exeter is recruiting ex-forces personnel who were deployed to a combat zone during their career, to take part in a research study.
The study will last about an hour and will take place at the University of Exeter where people will be asked to fill out questionnaires and to listen to a short meditation.
Involvement in the study will be kept strictly confidential at all times and you will be paid £10 for your participation.
Taking part in the study will mean that you are contributing to the development of psychological interventions for Armed Forces Veterans. If you are interested in the study, please follow the link for further information.
Hi, I am looking to recruit female ex-military personnel for my psychology dissertation research. This study hopes to explore the changes within veteran relationships based on the transition when couples move from long-distance to geographically close, at the end of military service.
If you are:
A female veteran
Was in a long term relationship during you transition from the military into civilian life.
And if this relationship could be classed as long distance, i.e. You were separated from your partner by a physical distance that prevented you from seeing each other every day.
Then you would be the perfect candidate to take part in my research study, where you will be invited to an individual interview, to discuss your transition to civilian life, specifically your relationship during this time.
If you are interested, please get in touch where I can send you further information and answer any questions you may have, Thank you!
Are you a veteran who could talk to us for a new film we’re writing?
As part of the national commemoration of WW1, artist group Blast Theory (www.blasttheory.co.uk) have been commissioned by 14-18 NOW (www.1418now.org.uk) to make an interactive feature film exploring why some of us choose to go to war and others choose not to.
Blast Theory artist Matt Adams (also directing and co-writing the films) would like to interview ex-service people and learn of their experiences of frontline service with a particular focus on the challenges of combat. The script will be derived from these interviews and verbatim extracts may be used in some cases.
We want to interview ex-military, RAF or Navy people:
– with experience of front line combat and / or direct involvement in conflict zones
– of any gender from across the UK with diverse cultural backgrounds
– willing to speak for 60-90 minutes
If you’re interested to help or want to know more about the project please get in touch with me by email: @blasttheory.co.uk">firstname.lastname@example.org
Interviews will take place in March and April 2018.
Natalie is a PhD student at Loughborough (UK University) and is conducting research into the use of feedback to improve lower limb amputee rehabilitation.
Natalie says, “I am currently recruiting male or female unilateral transtibial amputees (please see the attached poster for further information) to undertake one, five hour test protocol. The protocol consists of 20 minutes of both overground and treadmill walking at the participants chosen speed and some maximal muscular effort against a restraint whilst seated. As well as being a great opportunity for participants to help advance lower limb rehabilitation, all participants will receive a report of their walking characteristics.”
Armed Forces and Veterans Breakfast Clubs.
I completed a qualitative research project in 2018 and wrote a journal paper on the incredible increase in the number of Armed Forces and Veterans Breakfast Clubs (AFVBC) in all parts of the UK and a few in other parts of the world. The paper, in its second revision, is being peer-reviewed and I hope soon to have news that it is ready for publication. Watch this space.
