CMNH is open to widening the circle of those involved in its work.
There are a number of different ways to participate, whether as an individual researcher, a group or an institution. These range from attendance at Centre events, to becoming a Researcher Member or a Visiting or Affiliated Researcher, applying for postgraduate and postdoctoral study, and establishing a collaborative partnership.
Attendance at forthcoming events: Our research seminars are free and anyone interested, from inside and outside the University, is welcome to attend; no advance booking is necessary. Our symposia and conferences require registration in advance and sometimes charge a fee (with concessionary rates) to cover costs. Details of all forthcoming Centre events are available on the website and also notified through our email list and social media.
Becoming a Researcher Member: Open to University of Brighton staff and doctoral students only. Individual scholars and practitioners who would benefit from, and contribute to, the work of the Centre are welcome to join. For further details of the role, criteria and procedure for joining see here.
Proposals for partnership and collaboration: CMNH welcomes proposals from individual researchers, practitioners and activists, and from groups, organisations and institutions from the academy and wider society – local, national and global – to explore possibilities for collaborative work, grant applications or a potential partnership arrangement. Informal soundings and enquiries may be made to the Centre or to any member of the Steering Group, to be followed up where possible by a web link or other information about the individual, group or project. Formal proposals should be addressed to the Director. The Centre has only a limited capacity to offer advice, respond to enquiries, or engage in activities that are not supported by external funding.
Visiting and Affiliated Researchers: CMNH hosts occasional Visiting Researchers who wish to be based here in Brighton during a research visit over a specified period of time, and Affiliated Researchers who seek a formal, ongoing relationship at a geographical distance. To apply, please send us a two-page CV and a short statement (c.300–500 words) that briefly introduces yourself and your work, explaining how this relates to the Centre, and for Visiting Researchers, how you plan to contribute. Approval is made by the Centre’s Steering Group.
Affiliation for Masters students: Open to postgraduate students registered on University of Brighton Masters courses only. CMNH welcomes the participation of Masters students in its activities and offers the opportunity for those wishing to develop particular interests to become an affiliated member. To apply, please send us by email a brief paragraph explaining your interests and what you hope to gain from affiliation, and a note of support from your Course Leader. Masters courses with links to the Centre include:
Applications for postgraduate research study: CMNH 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 identified Research Areas. Outline proposals and enquiries about supervision, made to the Centre or to potential supervisors, are welcome. Applications for funded studentships and self-funded study (part-time and full-time) must be made to the Brighton Doctoral College.
For details of fully funded PhD studentships available under the 2019-20 AHRC/technē competition, see here.
Postdoctoral fellowships: CMNH currently is unable to offer any funded fellowships for postdoctoral researchers. We welcome proposals from applicants to 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.
