The Amsterdam School of Historical Studies (ASH) currently has a vacant Postdoctoral position as part of the NWO-funded VICI Project The Invention of the Refugee in Early Modern Europe, led by professor Geert Janssen. ASH is one of the six research schools under the aegis of the Amsterdam Institute for Humanities Research.

Project description

This Postdoctoral project Refugees and Early Modern States is one of five closely-related projects, which together aim to analyse the invention of the refugee in early modern Europe. Funded through a VICI-grant of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), the programme seeks to achieve three inter-related objectives:

  1. To explain the emergence of the refugee as a social category in European society.
  2. To identify the agency of displaced religious minorities in forging transnational solidarity networks.
  3. To uncover the impact of refugees on European state formation.

The Postdoctoral researcher will study objective 3 by examining how the protection and accommodation of displaced men and women interacted with the ambitions of early modern authorities to expand their territories and forge confessional regimes. She/he will work closely with three PhD’s and the PI. A detailed research outline on the project, including potential source material, may be obtained from the PI Geert Janssen.

Tasks of the Postdoctoral researcher will include:

  • participating in meetings of the project research group and developing a shared database;
  • presenting intermediate research results at workshops and conferences, and delivering at least two peer reviewed articles;
  • organizing knowledge dissemination activities;
  • organizing an international conference on early modern refugees and (co-)editing a collection of essays;
  • contributing to teaching courses in early modern history.
Requirements

The successful applicant must have:

  • a PhD in Early Modern History;
  • excellent research skills, demonstrated by a track record of publishing in high-ranking journals and/or with leading presses or a demonstrable capacity to develop such a record;
  • a strong cooperative attitude and willingness to engage in collaborative research;
  • enthusiasm for communicating academic research to non-academic audiences;
  • proficiency in English.
