The Department of Economics at Lancaster University Management School (LUMS) is inviting applications for entry into its PhD and Integrated PhD programmes. The PhD programme is a 4-year programme and is open to students who have completed a master’s degree in economics. The Integrated PhD programme is a 5-year programme which consists of a 1-year MSc plus 4-year PhD. The Integrated PhD programme is open to students who have completed their bachelor’s degree in economics (or related field). Our PhD/Integrated PhD programmes are aimed at high-calibre students who wish to pursue a research career in academia, government, research organisations, or in business.
The wide variety of research areas within our department include Behavioural and Experimental Economics; Labour, Education and Health Economics; Macroeconomics and Financial Markets; Political Economy and International Trade; Industrial Organisation; and Economic Theory.
LUMS and ESRC scholarships are available for outstanding students from all nationalities. The scholarships cover tuition fees for three years and include a generous living allowance. For exceptional candidates, this year the Economics Department will also have a Doctoral Research Associate position available, which covers tuition fees for four years and pays a generous salary for the duration of your studies.
We are inviting you to attend an online information session about LUMS PhD programmes on 11 January 2024, 12:00-13:30 (GMT). Prospective students will obtain information about our PhD programme and the application process, funding, our world-leading research, living in Lancaster, and job opportunities after graduation.

We recruit candidates on a continuous basis.
