3+3 year Post doc in Financial History at Uppsala University, Sweden

19-06-2024 20:12

The Department of Economic History at Uppsala University, Sweden, is offering a three-year Browaldh Post-doc fellowship (with the possibility of a three-year extension) in Financial History. The deadline for applications is 15 August. You can find the full call below and on our homepage under vacancies:

The Department will appoint a post-doc to a full-time research position for three consecutive years, with the possibility of renewal for a further three years. The appointed postdoc will be free to formulate research in financial history. The position may be combined with a small teaching load. The appointed postdoc should preferably start work in January 2025, but this starting date can be negotiated within reasonable limits.

The position is financed by a personal stipend, the Browaldh stipend, provided by Handelsbanken/Jan Wallanders och Tom Hedelius stiftelse and Tore Browaldhs stiftelse, which covers living expenses, expenses for conferences, literature, etc., as well as funds for personal insurance. For general insurance for residents, see the Swedish social and health care system: Move to Sweden - Försäkringskassan (

The appointee is expected to have the Department of Economic History as his/her base, but it will be possible to work as a guest researcher in other academic environments during the post-doctoral period. Stays longer than six months must be negotiated with the donor, Jan Wallanders och Tom Hedelius stiftelse and Tore Browaldhs stiftelse. The position is not a formal appointment in the department and is therefore not subject to the Swedish Employment Protection Act. It is also not automatically part of the academic career system at Uppsala University. However, it is possible to extend the fellowship for another three years after a new application has been submitted by the department.

The Department of Economic History at Uppsala University is an active research and teaching department with a full graduate programme. Uppsala is Sweden's fourth most populous city and home to the oldest university in the Nordic countries, located 40 minutes from Stockholm city centre and 20 minutes from Stockholm Arlanda International Airport. The Department is home to a vibrant research environment with a wide range of topics, and our research also has a long tradition of focusing on different aspects of financial history such as international economic relations, global political economy, capital flows and international monetary systems, international trade, the impact of tariffs, wars, bilateralism/multilateralism, exchange rate arrangements, monetary policy, etc.
