The Department of Political Science at LUISS invites applications for five fully-funded PhD scholarships to commence PhD studies in the academic year 2020/2021.
The PhD program is in English, has a duration of four years and includes coursework and training in research methods in the first year.
Supervision will be mainly provided by Professors members of the Academic Board. The program also facilitates exchanges with partner universities abroad and provides additional financial support to enable such study periods and field work.
The Department of Political Science has excellence in a number of research clusters and we invite research proposals specifically in these areas: Regional and Global Governance, EU Institutions and Policy-making, Communication Studies, Parliaments, Elections and Political Representation, Politics and Institutions: History, Normative Theory and Current Practices. Applicants are also encouraged to familiarise themselves with the expertise of the members of the Academic Board which determines the range of supervision that is available in the program.
In particular, we at CISE are keen to supervise quantitative projects oriented towards voting behaviour, party competition and party systems in comparative perspective.
The deadline for submitting applications is on the 7th of February 2020, 16:00 (CET)
