London Interdisciplinary Social Science DTP (LISS DTP)

King's College London, with partners Imperial College London and Queen Mary University of London, has been awarded Doctoral Training Partnership status by the UK's Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC). The London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (LISS DTP) now has an active website; we include many useful direct links below.

LISS DTP will be offering various forms of studentship funding that can be undertaken at any of our three partners, allowing students to work with some of the world's leading experts in areas that include: 1) health, well-being and social inclusion 2) economics and business 3) language, culture and education 4) the environment and urban life and 5) security and governance. LISS will also run research methods training and support subject-specialist Pathway events in an inter-institutional context in which doctoral students using social science approaches from across the three partnership institutions can participate.

The LISS DTP's research remit spans 13 Thematic Pathways, covering 5 broad strategic research areas:
