PhD in Gender Studies

As of 2016, the Centre for Gender Research at Uppsala University are able to offer a PhD programme in Gender Studies.

PhD students are admitted after the advertising of open positions, both on the Centre's website and on Uppsala University's website. PhD students placed at the Centre for Gender Research may be PhD students in Gender Studies, or PhD students “shared” with other disciplines at Uppsala University, or “guest PhD students” 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 their thesis and to a degree in Gender Studies. The PhD may be pursued in English or Swedish. A number of PhD students have completed their theses and eight PhD students are currently working at the Centre.
