Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in History at the Centre for History and Economics

Applications are invited for two 3-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in history, starting on 1 October 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter. The posts are in connection with the research programme on economic and environmental history. The programme is based at the Centre for History and Economics, Magdalene College, Cambridge University, and is coordinated by Professor Paul Warde. The Fellowships are not associated with a Fellowship of a Cambridge College but can be combined with a non-stipendiary College Fellowship. The stipend will be £34,304 in the first year and subject to increments in subsequent years. The positions are pensionable. An allowance will be available towards relocation costs.

Any offer of employment will be subject to the applicant holding the right to work in the UK. If you require a visa to work in the UK and have completed a PhD you may be eligible for the Global Talent visa. Applicants are responsible for applying for the Global Talent visa themselves. The Centre for History and Economics may be able to assist the successful candidate in obtaining a Skilled Worker visa, if required.

Further particulars are available from the Centre for History and Economics, Magdalene College, Cambridge CB3 0AG, and on the website at The applicants are asked to complete an online application form and submit through the Application Portal with a curriculum vitae and a statement of research interests (up to 1000 words). They should also nominate two referees through the online Referee Nomination Portal. It is the responsibility of candidates to ensure that referees submit letters of recommendation by the closing date of the competition.

The deadline for receipt of applications and letters of recommendation is 23.59 BST on Friday 28 October 2022. Interviews are expected to take place by Zoom on 9 January 2023.

The Centre for History and Economics follows an equal opportunities policy.
