Postdoctoral Fellowships

LSE Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) - Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme 2021

The ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) at the LSE is delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding from the ESRC to appoint seven Postdoctoral Fellows for the 2021-22 academic year.  This opportunity is open to applicants who have completed their PhD at a Research Organisation that is part of a DTP. A list of eligible DTP’s can be found here. The fellows must also be located on an accredited DTP pathway.  A summary of the LSE accredited pathways and departments is listed here.

Each ESRC DTP has its own recruitment process that is updated each year. The LSE recruitment process may differ from that of other DTPs and from that of previous years. Please note that the LSE requires that candidates identify and make contact with a suitable mentor prior to submitting their application. Candidates should refer to the list of accedited pathways and departments to assist with this process.

We have a very high level of interest in the LSE ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme. For this reason, we will be unable to respond to any queries that are already addressed in the guidance documents and information available on this webpage. Such queries will be referred back to this webpage. 

Each ESRC DTP has its own recruitment process that is updated each year. The LSE recruitment process may differ from that of other DTPs and from that of previous years.  For example candidates to the 2021 LSE ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme are expected to submit all application documents by one deadline.  Please note that the Application Form, Justification of Resources Form and Call Specification have been updated for LSE applicants.

Queries about the operation of the scheme at the LSE that are NOT covered in the Guidance documents should be sent to phdacademy@lse.ac.uk with the subject “ESRC PDF Application Scheme Query 2021-22”.

Due to the high level of interest in this scheme we are unable to answer queries by telephone.
