Brief Description

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) invites applications from candidates from Sub-Saharan Africa for fully-funded 4-year PhD studentships to start a research degree programme on 3 January 2022. There are three studentships available.


These studentships have been made possible through the generosity of Reckitt, through an unrestricted donation to LSHTM.

Each Ph.D studentship will comprise:

  • Tuition fees at the LSHTM overseas fee rate for the duration of the research project (up to 4 years)

  • An annual tax-free stipend equal to the UKRI stipend level (inclusive of London weighting)

  • Up to GBP20,000 for research costs, travel and/or training


Applicants must be nationals of a country in Sub-Saharan Africa and meet the minimum LSHTM entry requirements. Additional skills and educational requirements are specified for each project. Please see the specific project information for further details.


The deadline for applications is 23:59 (BST) on Sunday, 11 July 2021.
