Applications are invited for a part-time Postdoctoral Research Associate to join the research project Everyday Practices of Trans-individuality: viral ecologies of isolation and exposure during the Covid-19 pandemic (EPTI). The project, led by Dr Sage Brice, examines everyday practices of gender under the pandemic conditions of Covid-19 and asks how they might reflect bigger social questions about the nature of identity and subjectivity. The research uses creative and collaborative methods, working online with a small group of trans and nonbinary people to develop a graphic narrative output.
As the project involves working in a trans-focused ‘safer space’, the applicant should have experience of working with trans and nonbinary people in a relevant context (professional or voluntary). We welcome candidates from any disciplinary background with expertise in any one, or multiple, of the following research areas: queer, trans, and/or gender studies; environmental studies; participatory research; creative research methods. Those with interdisciplinary backgrounds, unconventional professional pathways, and experience of transdisciplinary collaboration will be particularly well suited to the post.
The successful applicant will be expected to work closely with the PI to support core aims and objectives of the EPTI project. Their work time will be divided equally between developing their own related research and assisting in the delivery of the following project objectives: co-hosting and facilitating creative workshops and ongoing consultation with trans and nonbinary research participants; co-ordinating and editing a journal special issue; convening a mini conference on the theme of Trans Ecologies, and contributing ! to the ov erall research profile of the EPTI project.
