Salary: £37,474 to £42,115 per annum

Applications due: February 8, 2023

“The University of Glasgow seeks a postdoctoral researcher to join the Gender and Family strand of the project ‘Deindustrialization and the Politics of our Time’ (DéPOT), funded by the Canadian Social Science and Humanities Research Council. The successful candidate will work with Dr. Jackie Clarke and an international team of researchers and project partners. The overall aim of the DéPOT project is to transnationalize our understanding of the historical roots and lived experiences of deindustrialization, as well as political responses to it.

Applicants are invited to upload with their application a statement (500 words) outlining their proposed research and how it will contribute to the project. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: rethinking gendered spaces of deindustrialization (e.g. deindustrialization and leisure, home or consumption); gender and the political economy of deindustrialization; trans-generational perspectives; gender, race and deindustrialization; deindustrialization and the body; queering deindustrialization studies. Transnational and/or comparative proposals are particularly welcome.

The post is based in Glasgow, where the successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in the Centre for Gender History.

Informal enquiries may be directed to Dr Jackie Clarke

This post is full time (35 hr per week) and fixed term for 18 months.
