PhD Studentships in Business & Management

Lancaster University – Lancaster University Management School

8-10 Studentships Available

Join us for a PhD experience that will enhance your research capabilities and help you make a real impact in your discipline.

Lancaster University Management School (LUMS) are offering three-year PhD studentships in Business & Management, under the auspices of the North West Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP).  Programmes are available in the following areas:

  • Management (Entrepreneurship and Strategy)
  • Management (Organisation, Work and Technology)
  • Management Science
  • Marketing

We are looking for highly-motivated doctoral candidates to join our international community of researchers and students from more than 180 countries. Through the NWSSDTP, we offer fully-funded PhDs for UK, EU and overseas students wishing to study on the above programmes.

LUMS is a quadruple-accredited, world-ranked management school, that has a reputation for outstanding research.  In the UK’s latest Research Excellence Framework, REF 2021, we were rated as first for Research Power – recognising the breadth and depth of our work – and joint-first for our research environment, providing the perfect platform for future research talent to develop and flourish. In REF 2021, 90% of our research was rated world-leading or internationally excellent.  Our commitment to high-quality doctoral research is demonstrated by LUMS PhD graduates obtaining academic, research and consultancy positions in quality institutions around the globe.

Our PhD Business & Management pathway programmes offer advanced research training courses, high-quality supervision by internationally-recognised academics, and participation in the School’s wider research community, making your PhD experience challenging and rewarding.

LUMS is part of the ESRC North West Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership, together with the Universities of Liverpool and Manchester. Fully-funded studentships are offered through this partnership for UK, EU and Overseas students. You will need to have been offered a place on one of the above programmes before being put forward for ESRC funding.  We will also be offering funded LUMS studentships, and all the applicants for the ESRC competition will be also considered for this internal funding.

To join our world-leading research environment, candidates must have an excellent first degree and outstanding Masters level degree performance.  Qualifications should be in a related discipline to your intended PhD studies.

Full-time studentships will commence in October 2024 for research proposals that align with the research interests of the relevant department and that will enhance the research reputation of LUMS. All studentships pay a generous living allowance and offer a fee waiver for three years.
