Reading Time: 2 minutes

University of Brighton’s Doctoral Training Partnerships offer opportunities for funded PhD research in the area of Sexuality and Gender Research with top quality research training programmes and excellent cross-iinstitutional links and external partnerships.

The University’s Transforming Sexuality and Gender Research Cluster can provide expert supervision teams and subject-specific methodological training.

The Transforming Sexuality and Gender Research Cluster at the University of Brighton homes internationally recognised scholars who work in and across a wide range of fields intersecting with the study of genders and sexualities, across the Arts & Humanities and the Social Sciences.

We are inviting prospective doctoral students who are interested in applying for studentships either through the AHRC Techne Scheme or ESRC South Coast programme, with a focus on innovative and interdisciplinary Gender and Sexualities research.

The transforming sexuality and gender research cluster brings together researchers from across the university who are working on themes related to sexuality, gender and social change with a core focus on producing research with community partners that impacts on policy and practice.

The cluster incorporates two key research themes: (1) LGBTQ Lives Research and, (2) Sex, Sexuality and Health

We are committed to cutting edge research and community engagement. Many of our researchers have a shared commitment to feminist, post-structuralist and queer theoretical approaches and use a variety of methodologies that are participatory, visual and creative.

The Cluster offers an opportunity to work with researchers specialising in gender and sexualities research across a broad range of subject areas, including:

  • Human Geography
  • Media Studies
  • Cultural Studies and Popular Culture Social and Mobile Media
  • Drama and Sexualities
  • Early Modern Sexuality and Gender
  • Literature and Film
  • Activism
  • Sexualities, Health and Mental Health
  • Sexual Practices, Identities and Cultures
  • Health Inequalities
  • Youth Gender Cultures

We welcome expressions of interest from potential applicants interested in pursuing PhD research in the areas listed above.

PhD students will have access to the Cluster’s own methodological space, The Creative Methods Lab, brand new and beautifully designed facilities where researchers meet to develop and conduct research, using state-of the-art visual and audio recording equipment.

Applicants will need to meet AHRC / ESRC eligibility criteria for funding.
