The Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories invites applications to undertake postgraduate research leading to PhD or MPhil awards on topics that relate to any of our fields of interest and the supervisory expertise of the centre’s staff, especially topics that contribute to one of our thematic research areas.
We welcome innovative approaches to interdisciplinary research grounded in theories and methods drawn from right across the arts, humanities and social sciences, and we support both academic and practice-based PhD projects.
The Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories has a long-standing reputation for support with research degree studies and offers help with preparation of high-quality PhD proposals and funding applications. As a postgraduate research student you will be an active member of the centre with opportunities to play a key role in the conception and organisation of our research events, to propose ideas and initiate activities, to present your own work and to make beneficial interdisciplinary networks with academics and other postgraduate research students both inside and outside the University of Brighton.
For further information please contact the centre via MemoryNarrativeHistories@brighton.ac.uk, visit our 'Who we are' staff profiles for details on our academic supervisory staff, or explore the links below.
The programme list is neither prescriptive nor exhaustive and we welcome innovative approaches to cross-disciplinary research.
Apply for a postdoctoral fellowship:
We welcome proposals from applicants to postdoctoral fellowship schemes offered by the British Academy, Leverhulme Trust or other funding bodies who wish to locate their research within the centre, and we are able to advise on the possibility of securing institutional support for such applications from the University of Brighton.
Postdoctoral researchers who have recently been awarded their PhD from the University of Brighton may apply for a Visiting Research Fellowship to continue their affiliation to the Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories.
