Project Manager INIA
INIA is a new international research network which is funded for 48 months. INIA will train a cohort of 10 early stage researchers working collaboratively to develop knowledge that will inform policy making and practice across a range of key sectors. The training addresses key issues for intersex wellbeing and rights, and it will develop topical applied outputs of relevance to stakeholders concerned to support the wellbeing and rights of intersex people, and intellectual resources. Intersex people are a highly marginalised population whose specific healthcare, social and human rights issues are often overlooked. They are diverse and continue to face exposure to multiple forms of human rights violations and discrimination, requiring cross-sectoral policy responses in fields including healthcare, education, and the law. INIA will enable a consortium of 21 organisations from 10 countries to work together on issues relating to intersex people and those with variations of sex characteristics, in a unique multidisciplinary and transectoral network. INIA is being established by the University of Huddersfield in partnership with the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Dublin City University, the University of Zurich, the Escuela Andaluza de Salud Pública / Andalusian School of Public Health and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona as the main partners.
This Innovative Training Network (ITN) aims to develop Intersex Studies as an interdisciplinary field, building on the existing scholarship of intersex people, and developing intellectual resources across a range of key areas. The Network consortium will bring together academic and other organisations across several European countries, in order to enable the training of a cohort of early stage researchers who will conduct research and in many cases gain PhDs. This will be achieved by the establishment of a doctoral programme, delivered by partner Universities in collaboration with NGOs (especially Intersex Activist and Advocacy organisations) and other organisations. Workshops and summer schools will form a crucial part of the Network, enabling the development of a strong community of scholars and stakeholders.
This is an open-ended appointment and is dependent upon the availability of specific funding in this School. In the event of there being no further funding available to support this post you will receive appropriate notification of the termination of your employment in accordance with contractual provisions.
