Position opening: 3-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in History, Magdalene College, Cambridge, 2024, September 29, 2023

September 29, 2023

Applications are invited for a 3-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in history, starting on 1 October 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter.  The post is in connection with the research programme on economic and environmental history. The programme is based at the Centre for History and Economics, Magdalene College, Cambridge University, and is coordinated by Professor Paul Warde. The Fellowships are not associated with a fellowship of a Cambridge college but can be combined with a non-stipendiary college fellowship. The stipend will be £35,326 in the first year and subject to increments in subsequent years. The position is pensionable. An allowance will be available towards relocation costs.

Any offer of employment will be subject to the applicant holding the right to work in the UK. If you require a visa to work in the UK and have completed a PhD you may be eligible for the Global Talent visa. Applicants are responsible for applying for the Global Talent visa themselves. The Centre for History and Economics may be able to assist the successful candidate in obtaining a Skilled Worker visa, if required.

Further particulars are available from the Centre for History and Economics, Magdalene College, Cambridge CB3 0AG, and on the website at https://histecon.fas.harvard.edu/ehc/.  The applicants are asked to complete an online application form and submit through the application portal with a curriculum vitae and a statement of research interests (up to 1000 words). They should also nominate two referees through the online referee nomination portal. It is the responsibility of candidates to ensure that referees submit letters of recommendation by the closing date of the competition.

The deadline for receipt of applications and letters of recommendation is 23.59 BST on Friday 29 September 2023. Interviews are expected to take place by Zoom in early December 2023.

The online application form is available here.
