The Department of History seeks to appoint a Research Fellow to work on the ERC-funded project ‘The Making of Monoculture: A Global History’ (MaMoGH), led by Prof Frank Uekötter.
MaMoGH, a major 5-year project funded by the European Research Council, explores the rise and resilience of monocultures around the world. The aim is to understand why organic production regimes worldwide have gravitated towards a reliance on one single species during the modern era. It includes a number of case studies that investigate individual monocultures in specific places. This case study focuses on the development of vegetable production in the east of England after 1945.

The research fellow will have a PhD in History, Anthropology, Geography or related disciplines, or equivalent qualifications/experience, as well as a demonstrated ability to work independently to the very highest levels of research excellence. Research may require interviews, participant observation, and other forms of field work.
The research fellow will join a team of academics who explore the world of monoculture. As a member of the History Department, the research fellow will join a lively and flourishing research community where they will enjoy opportunities for intellectual and other leadership in a collegiate and highly ambitious environment.
