PhD studentships

The University are offering scholarships for PhDs about some interesting topics, including information literacy.

Functional literacy and document design: A considerable proportion of the population is reported to have low levels of functional literacy. We would be interested to receive proposals for an investigation of the use of document design techniques (such as clear language, typographic features, design and testing methods) to make documents easier to use by people who perform poorly in literacy tests. This study would be a crossdisciplinary study that would take account of theories of literacy, reading processes, learning, and document design.
