Oxford University, Jagiellonians Project: Research Associate – Call For Applications

Jagiellonians: Dynasty, Memory and Identity in Central Europe

The Jagiellonians Project at the University of Oxford is now seeking a Research Associate who will focus on the Jagiellonians and the German-speaking lands, particularly Jagiellonian princesses in the Holy Roman Empire and Austria, to continue work done by other members of the team.

The successful candidate will hold a doctorate in medieval or early modern history (or show evidence that a doctorate is imminent), and be fluent in modern and early modern German and Latin; s/he will have a capacity for excellent independent research, and also for working as part of a team engaging in innovative forms of collaborative working in the Humanities.

The interdisciplinary and ‘frontier research’ nature of the project, the opportunity to publish in both established and experimental formats, and the mentoring provided by the Principal Investigator and the History Faculty, make this post an excellent platform for a career in historical research.
