From Simon Cohn at The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Diseases (LSHTM):
"This year's competition for full and part-time PhD studentships (entry Sept 2020) and express our interest in working with a prospective individual towards submitting a competitive social science application in any health related topic to be based at The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Diseases (LSHTM) - see https://www.lshtm.ac.uk/study/fees-funding/funding-scholarships/bloomsbu...
The ESRC UBEL awards 40-50 grants for prospective PhD researchers at a number of partner London institutions, including LSHTM. UK residents receive full fees and a stipend; EU students would only have their fees paid. See https://ubel-dtp.ac.uk/
If successful, the student will have the opportunity to work closely with other social scientists at LSHTM. We are keen to attract someone who has a strong anthropology, sociology, STS, economics or policy-related first degree (and possibly Masters) who can draw on these theories and methods in a short research proposal.
If you are interested in submitting an application to this grant scheme and join our expanding faculty, please make contact with Simon Cohn (Simon.Cohn@lshtm.ac.uk), or Andrew Hutchings (Andrew.Hutchings@lshtm.ac.uk) as soon as possible to discuss possible topics and who might be best to supervise you.
In collaboration with potential supervisors, a preliminary application is due January, and then if it is progressed, the deadline for full applications is at the end of February 2019."
