Gender Studies at the University of Hull, led by Dr Suzanne Clisby, with colleagues in the EDGES and GEMMA Consortia have been successful in being funded under the Marie S. Curie European Commission ITN programme for a four year large scale research project across Europe to investigate Gender and Cultures of Equality in Europe (GRACE).
Our Gender & Cultures of Equality in Europe (GRACE) Project is recruiting 15 early stage (pre-doctoral) research assistants to work on 15 exciting research projects all investigating different aspects of gender and cultures of equality in Europe. The post-holders will also complete a fully funded PhD on the same topic during their period of employment.
This is an amazing opportunity and we are seeking very high calibre applicants for these well paid posts. You can apply to work with Universities/Organisations in Hull (UK), Oviedo (Spain), Utrecht (The Netherlands), Granada (Spain), CEU (Budapest), Lodz (Poland), or Bologna (Italy).
The project has only just started and so the central GRACE website is still in development, but is up and running: http://graceproject.eu/
Here is more information directly to the posts and application details: http://graceproject.eu/vacancies/
This is also the local (Hull University) website for GRACE that we set up while awaiting the central project site but it is also useful: http://www2.hull.ac.uk/fass/social-sciences/research/funded-research-projects/grace.aspx
There will be two posts based at the University of Hull – one investigating cultures of equalities in a city of culture (Hull 2017) and a comparable Spanish urban cultural event, and one investigating urban sports as sites for in/equalities. The calls for applicants for Hull will finally be out from 9th November and these will be added to the websites as soon as possible, so keep looking. The deadline for applications varies depending on each post, but is around the end of November/early December. Successful candidates will be employed for 36 months from 1st Feb or 1st March 2016.
There are some strict conditions set by the European Commission about who is eligible to apply:
· Early Stage Researchers must have fewer than four years research experience at the date of employment (1 February 2016), and must not have been awarded a doctoral degree
· Researchers may be of any nationality, but must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the ‘home’ base to which they are applying for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the 1 February 2016. More detailed explanation of these eligibility conditions can be found at: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/doc/call/h2020/h2020-msca-itn-2015/1622613-itn_2015_-_guide_for_applicants_v1_en.pdf.
