The Department of Economics at Lancaster University Management School (LUMS) is inviting applications for entry into its PhD and Integrated PhD (one-year Masters plus three-year Doctoral study) programmes. These programmes are aimed at high-calibre students who wish to pursue a research career in academia, government, research organisations, or in business.

PhD students in the Department work within a high-quality, research-active environment. Lancaster University is ranked in the Top 10 in all three major UK university league tables, and LUMS was ranked top in the UK for “research power” in the most recent REF (2014). PhD students enjoy close supervision by a group of well-established faculty members that specialise in their research topic, and have access to a wide range of advanced research training courses, which are provided in coordination with the ESRC-funded North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP). Students also participate in a large number of departmental activities, such as seminar series, workshops and conferences. 

Applications are welcome in all fields of Economics. PhD positions linked to specific research projects are also available. Information about these projects will become available in December on our website.
