Our research culture focuses on excellence and impact. Join us to help find novel solutions to the practical problems facing our planet, in collaboration with researchers around the world.
Your work at Middlesex will benefit businesses, users of technology, artists, consumers and the environment, in our local community, nationally and globally.
You'll benefit from the different perspectives and expertise of our collaborative global community of researchers who work across three international campuses and with global partners.
Wherever we can we look beyond our campuses, so that others can help us do more with our research. This inclusive innovation is a strength of Middlesex’s approach.
Bring your passion and research expertise to join us – as a research student, a researcher or a collaborator – and we’ll train and support you to transform the world with what you do.
Progress your career – all early career researchers get membership of sector-wide networks such as VITAE and we’ll link you with career opportunities in the wider community.
Develop your skills – our Researcher Development Programme develops skills such as research methods, preparing a research presentation and information about intellectual property and patenting.
Build your network – our annual Research Students’ Conference is led by students and brings together people across the University to showcase their work and make connections, and we give access to other researcher career development networks in London and further afield.
We value all our staff and students equally, and we believe that the talents, skills, insights and experiences of our diverse community make us who we are.
Equality, diversity, inclusion (EDI) and belonging are embedded in everything we do. Middlesex University has a number of EDI Staff Networks that are proactive and successful in instigating and developing new ideas, raising awareness across different issues and experiences, and holding supportive and informative events. They are also instrumental in influencing policy through the University Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
As part of our commitment to advancing gender equality, and to our Athena Swan Action Plan, we are working hard to achieve the objective of addressing the continued masculinised/feminised nature of some academic areas to ensure greater gender balance. In 2022/23, we raised – both internally and externally – the profile of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) at the University, demonstrating that women role models can succeed in STEMM careers, and at Middlesex University.
In celebration of International Women's Day (IWD) and throughout March 2023, we invited colleagues to get involved in a variety of internal events and externally hosted events and activities.
Our campus in north London brings together bespoke spaces and high quality research equipment, in which we have invested significantly in recent years, across all disciplines to provide the research infrastructure you need for your work.
We’ve developed a robust set of policies that guide what we do. Your work will be governed by our Academic Board, supported by a professional central Research and Knowledge Transfer Office and specialist Faculty Research and Knowledge Transfer teams for your subject. Our Research Degrees Administration Team are there to provide support for research students and supervisors.
