Dr Santokh Singh Gill joined the University of Huddersfield in July 2008 as a senior lecturer, combining teaching with research activity. He graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with degree in Social Sciences in 1997. His particular interest in the area of race and ethnicity prompted him to undertake a Masters degree in Race and Ethnic Relations at the University of Warwick, where he received ESRC funding. He went on to complete his PhD thesis in the area of sociology at the University of Derby, examining British born Sikhs and masculinity.
Santokh has previously worked as a Researcher and Lecturer at Staffordshire University, working on various projects including research with refugees, older adults, volunteers and vulnerable families. In 2005, he joined the Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Culture (C- SEC) at the University of Birmingham as a Research Fellow. At Birmingham, Santokh was involved in research exploring the political interests and engagements of Black and minority ethnic young people. He was also the lead researcher and principle investigator on a Joseph Rowntree Foundation funded project aimed at engaging hard to reach young British Muslim men of Pakistani origin in Bradford.
Santokh is currently a member of the Institute for Research in Citizenship and Applied Human Sciences and the Centre for Research in the Social Sciences.
