PHDs2016


The Gender Institute was established in 1993 as a multi-disciplinary research centre. The Institute runs a large Masters programme, attracting students from a range of different countries, and typically has 20 MPhil/PhD students researching gender concerns. The Institute serves as a focus for gender research across the LSE, and works to promote a close relationship between policy makers and the academy. Though the Institute only has a small core teaching staff, it provides a vibrant research culture with resident Research Fellows, visiting scholars, public lectures and conferences, and a regular programme of research seminars. 

Please have your application in by 9 January 2017 in order to be eligible for consideration for funding for first round of LSE scholarships and particularly ESRC funding.  You do not have to apply separately for funding.

We do not expect applicants to find supervision, so any queries please to Hazel below.
