How to apply for a vacancy

Making an application

Our online application system is quick and user friendly.

If you wish to make an application you will need to register to access the secure application part of this site. To register you simply need to provide some personal details which will go someway to completing the first stage of the application process. Note, you will be able to change this information at Stage 1 of the application process if required.

Once you have registered you will have access to the secure application process, which consists of eight simple steps in which we will ask you for the information required for your chosen vacancy. You will need to complete each step fully before you can submit your application for consideration. Note, while you are proceeding through the online steps none of your information is available to LSHTM. Only once you have submitted the application in the final step will your application be available for consideration.

You do not need to complete the whole application process in one go. If you do not have time or the information required is not at hand you may complete the rest of the application at another time. As you proceed through each step of the application process your details are saved and so when you return the information you entered will be retained. To login to complete an application, or to submit subsequent applications, simply login using your email address and the password you created when you registered.
