I am writing to ask for your help and support in circulating as widely as possible the advertisement for a position within my ERC-funded project Average-Transaction Costs and Risk Management during the First Globalization (Sixteenth-Eighteenth Centuries). You can see more details of the project here: http://humanities.exeter.ac.uk/history/research/centres/maritime/research/avetransrisk/
The post is somewhat of a hybrid position – both technical and with an academic side – and the successful candidate will play a pivotal role in the delivery of the project. As the position is attached to my grant, the post is time-limited, but with the exciting new developments at Exeter, where a new Digital Humanities Lab has just opened, there is plenty of opportunity to make one’s mark and possibly land a permanent position in due course. This is particularly the case as the Exeter team is very strong from the Digital ‘Humanities’ side, and they are looking to enhance their offer for the ‘Social Sciences’, given the nature of my project positioned between the two fields, the successful candidate will have a great opportunity of carving a personal niche!
Attached to this mail are the text of the Advertisement itself and the Further Particulars of the post. The ad is now live on the Exeter website, to view it and access the application form ‘Click here'<https://jobs.exeter.ac.uk/hrpr_webrecruitment/wrd/run/ETREC107GF.open?VACANCY_ID=647262KFVA&WVID=3817591jNg&LANG=USA>.
I thank you in advance for your help in circulating this, and I am of course available to answer any query about this position! Have a good weekend,
Professor in Social and Economic History
Director, Centre for Maritime Historical Studies
