About the role

We are seeking a Post-Doctoral Researcher to join a major 5-year research project, Global Correspondent Banking 1870-2000, funded by the European Research Council Advanced Grant scheme, led by Professor Catherine R. Schenk and based at the University of Oxford, Faculty of History, George Street, Oxford.

The Role

The overall objective is to analyze the changing shape of international correspondent banking networks across the 20th century using quantitative and qualitative research methods. Alongside a cohort of up to five Post-Doctoral researchers, the Researcher will be attached to a research stream that will use archival research and advanced statistical analysis to explore the dynamics of correspondent banking relationships in Europe during this period, including the banks’ strategy and the impact of economic and political shocks.

The successful candidate will manage own academic research and administrative activities, which involves small scale project management, to co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines. They will also prepare working theories and analyse qualitative and/or quantitative data from a variety of sources, reviewing and refining theories as appropriate, and maintain good communication with the project administrator, report regularly to the Principal Investigator and contribute to the reporting requirements for the project funder.

About you

You will possess sufficient specialist knowledge in a relevant discipline, which may include expertise in financial history or another cognate discipline, and knowledge of European economic history from 1870-2000. You will have experience in managing data through spreadsheets and databases and applying statistical methods to data (e.g. R, Stata, GIS), as well as experience in archival research and collection of quantitative data. Fluency in reading more than one European language, with willingness to travel to archives in Europe where appropriate, is essential.

You will hold a relevant PhD/DPhil, or evidence that a doctorate is close to completion, together with relevant experience. You will have excellent communication and data handling skills, a demonstrable capacity for independent research, be capable of managing your own academic research and associated activities, and have previous experience of contributing to publications and/or presentations. Expertise in programming and geographic/networking software as applied to large databases, and experience of actively collaborating in the development of research articles for publication would be desirable.

This post is full time, fixed-term for one year.
