We are seeking six Research Associates to join the team from September 2019, or as soon as possible thereafter, to join an ambitious 5-year multi-national research project. ‘The European Fiscal-Military System 1530-1870’ is funded by a €2.5 million European Research Council Advanced Grant, directed by Professor Peter Wilson, and hosted and coordinated by the University of Oxford.

Through six case studies (one for each appointee), this project will detail the extent to which co-operative processes were intrinsic to the growing scale of warfare and the rise of the European states system.

You will conduct independent research on one of the project’s six case studies, in libraries and archives in the UK and abroad. You will collaborate with the wider project team, take part in meetings, workshops and conferences, and contribute to public engagement work.

You will hold a doctorate in a relevant field (or show evidence that a doctorate is imminent), have sufficient knowledge of the languages relevant to your case study, and outstanding spoken and written English. You will have excellent communication and data handling skills, a demonstrable capacity for independent research and be capable of working to strict deadlines.

These posts are fixed-term for up to 3 years. For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Professor Peter Wilson:

Applications for this post must be made online by 12.00 noon (UK time) on 28 January 2019.
