The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) announces this year’s competition for full- and part-time PhD studentships (entry September 2020), with interest in working with a prospective individual towards submitting a competitive social science application in any health-related topic to be based at LSHTM.
The ESRC UBEL awards 40–50 grants for prospective PhD researchers at a number of partner London institutions, including LSHTM. UK residents receive full fees and a stipend; EU students would only have their fees paid.
If successful, the student will have the opportunity to work closely with other social scientists at LSHTM. We are keen to attract someone who has a strong anthropology, sociology, STS, economics or policy-related first degree (and possibly master’s) who can draw on these theories and methods in a short research proposal.
If you are interested in submitting an application to this grant scheme and join our expanding faculty, please make contact Simon Cohn (email@example.com), or Andrew Hutchings (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible to discuss possible topics and who might be best to supervise you.
In collaboration with potential supervisors, a preliminary application is due January 2019, and then if it is progressed, the deadline for full applications is at the end of February 2019.
