Information for potential supervisors


The DTP has funding agreed for 8-9 scholarships for the 2021-22 academic year. We are  soliciting projects from supervisors for this sixth, and final, cohort of students.

This is an exciting opportunity for supervisors to attract the brightest students for PhD scholarships that fall into at least one of the DTP themes. Supervisors are encouraged to discuss projects with theme leads, where appropriate.

We encourage applications from ‘big data’ projects, i.e. involving statistical analyses of high-dimensional electronic health records (EHR) and/or omics data.

We are particularly keen to encourage projects which might be converted, in due course, to Industrial CASE awards, and/or involve collaboration between LSHTM and SGUL.

Early career or relatively inexperienced supervisors are encouraged to apply, but should identify a suitable mentor. Supervisors and mentors will need to meet the supervision/mentor requirements of their institution . 

For further details on submitting a project bid please see the guidance notes. Completed project proposal forms should be submitted to by the deadline of midnight on Monday 9 November 2020.
