The Centre for the Political Economies of International Commerce within the School of History is seeking to recruit two Research Assistants to work as part of the Five-Year Leverhulme Trust funded project led by Dr William Pettigrew about the ‘History of the English Trading Corporation and the Global Determinants of the English Constitution’.
The successful applicant will conduct archival research around the world, participate fully in the activities of the research team (which includes four further post-docs), attend the project’s seminars and conferences, and assist Dr Pettigrew’s research and public outreach agendas. Despite the nomenclature of the post, the post-holder will be expected to deliver on their own research outputs (alongside collaborative work with the rest of the project team).
Although the project focuses mainly on seventeenth century English trading corporations, those who specialise in researching the history of European trading corporations in the seventeenth century are also encouraged to apply.
For further details and how to apply please use this link.
To be successful in this this role you will have:
• A first degree or equivalent in a relevant subject area
• A proven record of archival work and a record of giving research papers at conferences and seminars.
• Specialised knowledge of the history of the early modern European corporation
