Post-Doctoral Researcher in Global Correspondent Banking 1870-2000 – Correspondents & Crisis

Faculty of History, George Street, Oxford

Grade 7 points 1 to 3: £33,309-£35,326 per annum

About the role

We are seeking a Post-Doctoral Researcher to join the team working on a major 5-year research project, Global Correspondent Banking 1870-2000, funded by the European Research Council Advanced Grant scheme. The Researcher will join the team from March 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter. The project is led by Professor Catherine R. Schenk at the University of Oxford. The overall objective is to analyse the changing shape of international banking networks across the 20th century using an innovative methodology that allows greater specificity and inclusion than ever before.

Alongside a cohort of three to five Post-Doctoral researchers, the Researcher will be attached to a research stream that will use archival research and advanced statistical analysis to analyse how correspondent bank relationships were affected by cross-border banking crises and vice versa (to include the transatlantic financial crisis of 1907, the European financial crisis of 1931-32, the ‘silent crisis’ of 1974, and the sovereign debt crisis of 1982). This will include investigating the impact of the failure of major international correspondents in 1991.

About you

You will possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to work within established research programmes: this may include expertise in financial history or another cognate discipline and knowledge of British, European and international banking and economic history from 1870-2000. You will have experience in statistical methods, (e.g. R, Stata, GIS) and experience in archival research and managing data and be willing to travel to archives in the UK, USA and Europe where appropriate.

You will hold, or be close to completion of, a doctorate in a relevant field. You will have excellent communication and data handling skills, a demonstrable capacity for independent research, be capable of managing your own academic research and associated activities, and have previous experience of contributing to publications and/or presentations.

The post is full time, fixed-term for three years.

Application Process

For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Professor Catherine R Schenk: Catherine.schenk@history.ox.ac.uk.

You will be required to complete a supporting statement, setting out how you meet the selection criteria, curriculum vitae and the names and contact details of two referees as part of your online application.

Only applications received before noon Monday 29th November 2021 can be considered.

Interviews will be held mid December 2021.
