Doctoral Research Studentships

School of Management & Business, King’s College London

The School of Management & Business at King’s College London invites applications for a series of funded, full-time PhD studentships to start in the 2016-17 academic year.

The School is one of the leading management and business schools in the UK and has an outstanding reputation for the quality of its research and teaching. It is ranked 10th out of 118 UK management departments in the Guardian League Tables 2016 and is listed in the top 10 for research output in Business & Management in the 2014 UK Research Excellence Framework. In addition, the School is a constituent part of KISS-DTC (King’s College Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Centre) recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

The School has a number of areas of research expertise, and welcomes applicants in any of these areas. Applications from students in marketing and human resource management are particularly welcome.

  • Work, Interaction & Technology
  • Marketing
  • Human Resource Management
  • Accounting & Financial Management
  • Economics, Banking & Finance
  • Public Services Management
  • Entrepreneurship and Family Business
  • International Business & Comparative Management


The studentship is for three years and will cover tuition fees at the Home/EU rate, as well as an annual stipend of £16,296 to contribute to living costs. In order to prepare students for academic careers, individuals receiving a studentship will be expected to undertake some teaching and/or marking activities in the School. Any teaching undertaken will attract payment in addition to the stipend.


All full-time students applying for 2016/17 entry (September or January entry point) are eligible. Please note that international (non-EU) students are eligible, but will need to fund the difference in fees between the ‘Home/EU’ and ‘international’ rate themselves.

Application process

The closing date for application is: 21st March 2016.

Decisions will be announced in April 2016.

Applicants are strongly advised to contact a member of academic staff to discuss the research proposal prior to making an application.

Applications are submitted online. Applicants must specify a PhD in Management Studies with a start date of September 2016 or January 2017 to be included in the process.

In the 'Funding' section of the Online Application Form, applicants should indicate that they are applying for a School of Management and Business Doctoral Research Studentship.

Applicants should use the ‘Research Proposal’ section of the application form (approx 500 words) to set out their doctoral thesis and project in summary. They should use the ‘Personal Statement’ section (approx 500 words) of the application form to set out their academic background and interests and their reasons for wanting to pursue postgraduate research study in the School.


The criteria that will be used to assess studentship applications are:

Evidence of the candidate’s individual research potential. E.g. how strong are the academic references; academic transcripts, and other credentials such as prizes, academic awards or publications; and, where appropriate, professional qualifications and/or relevant experience? (50% weighting)

The quality and fit of the proposed research. E.g. are the research topic and questions well formulated? is there a feasible plan of action? does the work offer genuine scope for doctoral research? how well does the research fit with themes within the research group, the School and the wider College or, alternatively, does it make a contribution to developing an emerging programme of research in the School? does the work offer opportunities that will lead to societal or economic impact? (50% weighting)
