The London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership studentship competition for entry in October 2019 is now open. LISS DTP invites applications for four year (1+3) studentships for candidates for a masters degree leading directly to a PhD, and for three year (+3) doctoral studentships (PhD only) at one of the LISS DTP partner institutions, which includes Queen Mary.
LISS welcomes applications from UK and EU-resident candidates whose research is situated within any of LISS DTP’s 13 Thematic Pathways. These cover a range of social science disciplines, including business and management, economics, education, epidemiology, geography, international relations, law, linguistics, politics, psychology, sociology, war and security studies.
