The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) is delighted to offer a number of research council-funded PhD studentships for the 2019/20 academic year.
UBEL is one of the largest ESRC-funded Doctoral Training Partnerships in the UK, offering over 40 studentships a year, in areas that span across the social sciences and economics.
LSHTM is currently pathway lead for 2 of the 25 pathways offered: Demography Pathway and Health and Wellbeing, and is also a member of 2 other pathways: Quantitative Social Science pathway and International Development.
St George’s, University of London (SGUL) and LSHTM have formed this Partnership, funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC). The training programme is across three main themes at the forefront of innovative research and methodological development:
Both of these partnerships provide integrated skills training to develop a cohort of biomedical and public health scientists with world-class expertise in areas of strategic importance to UK and global medical research. 10 scholarships are available.
The Consortium is one of the largest BBSRC-funded Doctoral Training Partnerships in the UK and provides students with a unique opportunity to pursue innovative interdisciplinary research projects in the heart of one of the world's most vibrant cities. 30 BBSRC Funded Studentships are available each year.
This programme delivers research training that provides mathematical and computational skills to understand and model biological processes and function, while maintaining at the core, training in world-class bioscience that underpins all living systems.
Awards are available for PhD only, or for Master’s and PhD studies.
Applicants must be UK and EU nationals. Residency eligibility will also apply. Full details and eligibility criteria are available on the website.
