|Department of Social Policy and Intervention, 32 Wellington Square, Oxford|
|Grade 7: £32,817 - £40,322 p.a.|
The Department of Social Policy and Intervention is seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Fellow in the History of Elites to work on a project investigating the social origins of elites and how they have changed over time, as part of a multi-disciplinary and multi-method research group. This will involve original research into the processes of elite formation as well as archival work to identify data sources that may be used in quantitative or qualitative analyses of elites.
You will be responsible for managing your own academic research and administrative activities, identifying and analysing novel datasets, and collaborating in writing journal articles and giving academic presentations. The post holder will also be involved in a small amount of teaching.
You will have, or be close to completing a PhD/DPhil in a relevant subject area, such as British history since 1800 or a topic relevant to elite studies. You will be experienced in collecting original historical data and identifying appropriate archives. Ideally, the applicant would have experience conducting quantitative analysis of historical datasets but this is not essential. You will have experience of contributing ideas for research projects and grant applications, and you will possess excellent communications skills, with the ability to write for publication and to present your results.
This is a full-time post, fixed term for two years.
