Loughborough University London (LUL) is seeking to appoint seven excellent PhD candidates to undertake fully funded PhD projects at our London-based interdisciplinary school.
Our goal is to undertake interdisciplinary research that is bold, creative, and impact-focused to meet the grand challenges faced today.
We welcome applications from any candidate whose proposed research fits into LUL’s research activities across our seven Institutes covering the following disciplines: international management, diplomacy and international politics, design innovation, media and communications, AI and digital technologies, entrepreneurship, and sports business.
You will join our diverse and international community of doctoral researchers and internationally recognised faculty of highly experienced academic supervisors. Your proposal should comprise a 4-page (circa 2000-word) outline of your proposed project covering the aim, research questions, literature review and proposed methodology. Potential candidates are required to find a supervisor from among the LUL faculty who agrees to supervise their PhD subject to the application making it through the competitive selection process. Applicants should follow LU’s guidance on writing research degree proposals.
Allied to Loughborough University’s Creating Better Futures. Together strategy,
interdisciplinary research is fundamental to building inclusive communities in the face of new global geopolitical contexts, tackling climate change, net zero and sustainability, and grappling with the effects of AI and digital transformation.
