How to Apply
Within this programme, PhD applicants will work with named researchers across the relevant disciplines on a proposal that fits within the overall programme. Applicants should have a good honours degree (normally at least a 2.1 or equivalent in a relevant subject - which will include physics, maths, computer science as well as law, social science and the humanities), preferably also a Masters qualification, and a strong commitment to interdisciplinary approaches.
Outlines of the Research Proposals are posted within the Projects section. Applicants are strongly advised to make contact with their potential supervisor to develop their ideas about how they would contribute to the proposed project. The application should detail the particular contribution that the potential doctoral scholar would make to the proposed project, how this would fit into the wider themes of the programme and whether the application is for a three or four year award.
For any additional information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All applications should be made through the online Application Portal (below) and directed to the School where the Primary Supervisor is based. They must also be clearly marked as LINAS23 to ensure consideration for funding. Applicants should choose the option in the funding section “I wish to be considered for external funding” and then enter LINAS23 in the free text box which follows.
