LISS PhD Studentship Competition 2017-18 now open

Queen Mary University of London is a partner institution in one of the largest Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Doctoral Training Partnerships in the country.

Published:

The new London Interdisciplinary Social Science (LISS) partnership, with King’s College London and Imperial College, will provide over 50 funded ESRC studentships a year across a range of interdisciplinary areas. The Partnership will develop a research community across the social sciences and at the interface between social science disciplines and health and medicine, the natural and physical sciences, engineering and the arts & humanities. The partnership will fund 1+3 (Masters + PhD), +3 (PhD) and Case (collaborative) studentships. Students will have access to a range of training and development opportunities across the three institutions.

The 1+3 and +3 studentship competition for the 2017-18 academic year is now OPEN.  Applications are due by 31 January 2017, 17:00 GMT.

ESRC Collaborative (CASE) Studentships
LISS DTP’s Collaborative (CASE) Studentship Competition promotes partnerships between social scientists at Queen Mary University of London, and end-user organisations (public or private or third sector ‘partner institutions’).  A collaborative studentship (referred to as a CASE studentship) is a PhD studentship in which the student enhances their training by working closely with the non-academic partner in the development of their research project. They are a great way to initiate longer-term partnerships and to ensure the ‘impact’ of doctoral research.

The deadline for applications from academics for 2017-18 ESRC Collaborative (CASE) Studentships is Friday 9 December 2016, 17:00 GMT.
