The PhD program comprises four years of study, including the equivalent of one year full-time course work (60 ECTS) plus the equivalent of three years’ full-time thesis work (180 ECTS). The PhD candidate will be expected to contribute to the research milieus of the Centre of Gender Research and of the Engaging Vulnerability Program, and to engage actively with the work in the PhD program. Additional service at the Department regarding administrative and educational work may apply (max 20%) which then prolongs the duration of the PhD program with the corresponding time.

To be eligible to apply you have to have completed a degree at advanced (Masters) level and successfully completed courses to at least 240 ECTS, of which at least 60 ECTS are at advanced level (H7). Such courses or their equivalent may have been completed either in Sweden or abroad. Applicants should normally have completed a BA and MA in Women’s/Gender Studies or a cognate discipline, or have had Women’s/Gender Studies as part of their BA or MA degree.
