The QMUL-Leverhulme Trust Doctoral Scholarships (QMUL-LTDS) programme provides 21 new, fully-funded PhD research projects, which will run from 2018 to 2023. The projects are open to prospective researchers who are interested in the theme of ‘mobile people: mobility as a way of life’.
QMUL-LTDS is a research training programme that draws strength from both the interdisciplinary approaches of QMUL in social sciences and humanities and its extraordinary location in London’s East End as a historical hub of peoples, languages, and cultures from around the world. QMUL-LTDS projects will address the transformative effects of mobile people on the social and political institutions they inhabit and construct. How mobile people are creating new worlds, not solely as host versus guest, mobile versus immobile relations, but in ways which fundamentally challenge social and political institutions of citizenship, democracy, nationality and security is the innovative focus of this programme.
Further information on the programme and thematic priorities can be found on the QMUL-LTDS webpage.
As QMUL-LTDS is an interdisciplinary programme, you are encouraged to identify two potential supervisors from two different schools (disciplines) including the Schools of Politics and International Relations (IR), Business and Management, Economics and Finance, Languages, Linguistics and Film, Geography, Psychology (SBCS), History, and Law.
