Case for applicants

CASE for applicants

CASE doctoral projects available for October 2024 will be detailed below under ‘2024 Projects Recruiting Students’. Please view 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.

CASE studentships include UKRI Home Tuition Fees, plus a stipend at the UKRI rate. 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 +3.5 (PhD only) and 1+3.5 (Master’s + PhD) opportunities, which represent some of the broad range of interdisciplinary social research themes being investigated by LISS DTP staff and students.

How to Apply for a CASE Studentship – Students

Applicants applying to a CASE studentship 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 (up to +3.5 awards) or will be undertaken at Masters level (up to 1+3.5 awards).  Please check these guidelines before making an application.

How to propose a CASE Project for funding – Supervisors

LISS DTP invites CASE proposals from academics annually – see our guidance for supervisors for more information.  Between January and March students are invited to apply directly to the supervisor of the selected projects. Details of the projects and how to apply are listed below.
