PhD studentship: Capabilities approach, gender and health

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine has a number of PhD studentships for UK and EU students funded by the UK ESRC under their programme in ‘Health and Wellbeing’.  The program consists of three pathways: Health Economics, Public Health Interventions, and Global Change and Health.

One of the PhD studentships in the Public Health Interventions pathway is earmarked for research on the capabilities approach.  The research should aim to integrate capabilities approach theory and practice, public health, gender studies, and development studies.  It is provisionally titled ‘Towards a new measure of gender justice: Operationalizing the Sen/Nussbaum capabilities approach as a means to evaluate development projects.’ The supervisors are Lori Heise and Sridhar Venkatapuram.  The PhD research will be multi-disciplinary.  We invite prospective students to contact the supervisors prior to making an application.
