About the Project

The Department of Social and Political Sciences is inviting applications for a PhD project focusing any issue to be investigated via feminist lenses in the broad fields of politics, international relations or and/or security studies. The Department comprises internationally recognised researchers working on interdisciplinary projects focusing on feminist theory, security studies, international relations and sociology.

We invite the candidates to submit applications on a project focussed on the topic of their choice that will meet the following criteria:

• The project will use feminist theories as a primary mode of inquiry (for example postcolonial feminism, feminist institutionalism, etc.);
• The project will broadly fit within the disciplines of politics, international relations or security studies;
• The project will utilise feminist methodologies.

Research design
Either quantitative or qualitative methods, or a combination of approaches, will be possible. It is expected that the applicant will develop a research design that is well-matched to the project aim. The project is not restricted to an examination or a specific country or time period.

Attributes of the successful candidate
The successful candidate is an individual highly motivated to deliver an excellent research project informed by feminist theories and methodologies. They will be joining an exciting research culture and a community of over 130 doctoral students. They will be encouraged to present and publish their work at international conferences and in leading journals.
