Research Fellow in Medieval History,
School of History,
University of St Andrews.
The School of History and Department of Mediaeval History at the University of St Andrews invite applications for a 6-month postdoctoral fellowship to work with Dr Justine Firnhaber-Baker on her AHRC-funded project ‘The Jacquerie and Late Mediaeval Revolts’.
The postdoctoral fellow will co-edit a volume of essays with Dr Firnhaber-Baker, as well as contribute an article of his or her own to the volume. The postdoctoral fellow will also do some of the organization for a conference in April 2015 and will set up and populate a bibliographic wiki dedicated to mediaeval revolts. Applicants should have a completed PhD in mediaeval history or a related field. A reading knowledge of Latin and at least one European language other than English is essential. Reading knowledge of other European languages, especially Dutch or Italian is desirable, as is some experience with digital humanities and conference organization.
Applicants should submit a letter of application along with a curriculum vitae and the names of three referees. In addition to a list of publications (if any), candidates should submit a plan of the research they would plan to undertake over the duration of the project that would result in the publication of an article to be included in the edited volume.
Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Firnhaber-Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the role.
This post is for 6 months, starting on 2 February 2015, or as soon as possible thereafter.
