Case for applicants

CASE for applicants

CASE doctoral projects available for an October 2022 will be detailed below under ‘2022 projects recruiting students’. Please note that projects will not be available on this page until 17th December 2021. Please see under each project for further details about the application process.

LISS DTP’s Collaborative (CASE) Studentships promote partnerships between social scientists at King’s College London, Queen Mary University of London and Imperial College and end-user, non-academic organisations (public or private or third sector ‘partner institutions’).  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.

LISS DTP invites CASE proposals from academics each autumn – see the Proposals by Academics page.  Between January  and March students are then invited to apply (directly to the supervisor) to the selected projects, details of which  are listed below.

These studentships cover Home tuition fees plus a stipend.  There will also be opportunities to apply for additional funding in aid of the student’s training development and research activity.  There are a mix of +3 (PhD only) and 1+3 (Master’s + PhD) opportunities, which represent some of the broad range of interdisciplinary social research themes being investigated by LISS DTP staff and students.

Students applying for CASE studentships must meet the ESRC eligibility guidelines in terms of residency and academic qualifications, specifically core social science research methods training that must already have been undertaken (for +3 awards) or will be undertaken at Masters level (for 1+3 awards).  Please check these guidelines,before making an application.
