Dear group users,
I am a PhD student conducting research into public views on the topic
of mobile phone use and health.
The research will include a series of 5 online 'focus (lasting about
an hour in length). For this I am looking to recruit 12 members of
the public, who are interested in the issue of mobile phones and
health (but who do not class themselves as experts in this area).
They will be asked to look at some information on a website and then
engage in a discussion with other participants in a designated chat
My research is interested in the issue of public engagement in science
and technology decision-making, and in particular with reference to
new technologies and their associated possible risks to health (in
this case mobile phones and EMFs).
I intend to set up an innovative form of the 'citizen's jury' method,
whereby members of the public can discuss issues which they feel are
pertinent, including mobile phone use, base station siting and debates
concerning the biological effects of RF radiation. (Please note I can
send more detailed information about the study if you should like to
Participants will be paid for their time.
Anyone interested in taking part in this research, please email me on email@example.com
or call me on 07727087065
