About the Project
Reference Number: RS/20/17
Applications are invited for a PhD (via MPhil) studentship into the experiences of access and opportunities of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic academics into Research. In particular, the contribution that BAME academics can make into race as a critical point of enquiry and furthering an understanding of the experiences of BAME communities in the UK. The studentship is tenable for up to 3 years full time ( subject to satisfactory progress). Both Home/EU and International applicants may apply and studentship fees of £4440 will be covered and an annual stipend of £15,235 per year (upto 3 years) ( subject to satisfactory progress).
It is expected that the successful applicant will commence on 1st February 2021.
Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Early Career Researchers - Access and Opportunities to engage in Research into BAME communities
This studentship will focus on BAME early career researchers (ECRs) and their experiences of involvement in research. It will build on the recent and ongoing pilot research studies of a) BAME academics involvement in research and b) BAME access to and experiences of PGR opportunities in UCLan. The recent pilot studies undertaken by (Wainwright, Shorrock, Tompkins and Worsley 2020) evidenced that there was a significant disparity in the experiences of BAME academics being able to become involved in and develop a good research career. Some BAME academics articulated that they had a good experience, but most had experienced barriers or challenges that they felt were in part affected because they were of BAME heritage. This studentship will seek to understand these barriers and challenges with a view to developing new knowledge/models and/or recommendations that may overcome and identify clear career pathways for BAME ECRs to develop further research
In particular, within the context of the Black Lives Matters movement, it is important that BAME ECRs develop research that explore the relationship between UCLan and the local BAME communities in Lancashire. This transdisciplinary research inquiry into race, racism and ethnicity will develop into a body of work that establishes a key BAME led research strand at Uclan. Therefore, the intended outcome of this studentship would be that of a catalyst for the development of BAME ECR research staff accessing and developing race as a dedicated critical strand of research inquiry that better reflects local communities.
