The European Training Network (ETN) G-VERSITY – Achieving Gender Diversity is an interdisciplinary and intersectoral doctoral training network for early stage researchers. The academic partners are European research groups from psychology, education, management, business administration, media and communication studies at the University of Bern (Switzerland), Freie Universität Berlin (Germany), University of Helsinki (Finland), Radboud University (the Netherlands), University of Trieste (Italy), University of Surrey (UK), University of Stockholm (Sweden), the Institute of Psychology of the Czech Academy of Sciences (Czech Republic), and The Open University (UK). The non-academic partners are an organization running the leading certification for workplace gender equality, a city administration, a public broadcasting service, a media training centre, and three non-profit organisations.
G-VERSITY will (1) determine how significant background factors affect educational and professional pathways of women, men, and sexual and gender minorities, and (2) produce scientifically based interventions for use in the workplace—including workshops, guidelines, and training materials, to be applied by employers to attain gender diversity. The training consists of collaborative supervision of individual research projects by academic and non-academic partners including mandatory intersectoral secondments to other academic and non-academic partners. The aim is for the PhD students to gather experience in different research sectors and to develop their transferable skills by working on joint research projects. The research training will enable the PhDs to complete publication-based dissertations.
G-VERSITY offers 15 PhD positions for candidates who demonstrate a high motivation to do research on gender diversity and a strong desire to work in a trans-disciplinary research environment. Successful candidates will be hired for 36 months, the positions are available from December 2020 on.
