Applications are open for Reckitt-LSHTM PhD Studentships 2021-22 on Hygiene & Health in Sub-Saharan Africa. The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) invites applications from candidates from Sub-Saharan Africa for fully-funded 4-year PhD studentships to start a research degree programme on 3 January 2022. There are three studentships available.


These Reckitt-LSHTM PhD Studentships have been possible through the generosity of Reckitt, through an unrestricted donation to LSHTM. Each PhD studentship will consist the following benefits

  • Tuition fees at the LSHTM overseas fee rate for the duration of the research project (up to 4 years)
  • An annual tax-free stipend equal to the UKRI stipend level (inclusive of London weighting)
    Up to GBP20,000 for research costs, travel and/or training


LSHTM has pre-identified eight research projects that address the links between hygiene and health in Sub-Saharan Africa in one or more of the following areas:

  • The role of hygiene in the prevention and transmission of infectious diseases and their consequences
  • Hygiene behaviours and hygiene behaviour change
  • The intersection of hygiene and broader social and economic impacts
