As a PhD student in the Department you will not only be working within a high quality research active environment, but at a Top 10 UK University with a world class reputation for excellence in teaching and research. Our PhD training is coordinated within the ESRC funded North West Doctoral Training Centre (NWDTCÂ www.nwdtc.ac.uk) to give students wider access to advanced training courses. Economics PhD students at Lancaster are firmly embedded within the Departmentâs research culture and participate actively in research seminars and workshops. Students work closely with their supervisors and will be encouraged and financially supported to attend relevant training activities outside Lancaster and to present papers at conferences. Students may be required to engage in limited teaching activities â under close supervision by experienced teaching staff.
