Centre for Gender Research

PhD in Gender Studies

As of 2016, the Centre for Gender Research at Uppsala University has the right to offer a PhD program in Gender Studies.

PhDs are admitted after the advertising of open positions, both on the Centre's website and on Uppsala University's website. PhDs placed at the Centre for Gender Research may be PhDs in Gender Studies, or PhDs “shared” with other disciplines at Uppsala University, or “guest PhDs” enrolled at other universities in Sweden or abroad.

At the Centre for Gender Research, the PhD candidate is a colleague and an important presence in the local research community. The candidate will be expected to do course studies and thesis project work, but also to participate actively in seminars, conferences, work towards academic publications, and continuously work to stay up-to-date regarding current research in areas that are relevant to the thesis and to a degree in Gender Studies. The PhD may be pursued in English or Swedish. A number of PhDs have completed their theses while affiliated with the Centre and eight PhDs are currently working at the Centre.
