Research Associate in Early Modern Global History (Portuguese Focus), University of Manchester, UK

Applications are sought for a full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate to work with Dr Edmond Smith, conducting research for the ERC-selected, UKRI-funded project “Institutional Transformation and the Entangled Commercial Cultures of International Trade, 1450-1750” (INTRECCI). The project is based in the Department of History at The University of Manchester.

The successful applicant will hold a PhD in the field of early modern, global, or economic history, or in another relevant field, with expertise in the history of Portugal’s trade and empire. They will have working fluency in Portuguese and experience working with Portuguese-language primary sources, as well as excellent communication skills in English.

Under the overall project’s framework, the PDRA will contribute to both the comparative study of globalisation in specific regions and the connected analysis of institutional exchange between them. This will include fieldwork in archives and libraries away from The University of Manchester, as well as cataloguing and developing a shared project repository of material at The University of Manchester. The PDRA will co-organise events, write and co-author publications, and contribute to other collaborative activities.

The post is available for 3 years (36 months), to commence on 1 September 2024, or as soon as possible thereafter.

Deadline for applications: 10 April 2024
