In the context of The European Council’s Seventh Framework Programme on anticorruption policies, a history workgroup has been set up in order to examine the definition, development, and diversity of corrupt practices and anticorruption measures. Given the specializations of the scholars already involved in the project, the PhD candidate will focus his or her research on Medieval Europe and/or the Middle East (500-1500) or on Modern Europe, including its colonies (1750-2000). Proposed projects may engage any aspect of corruption among state or non-state entities (e.g., church, professional associations, companies, etc.), including attempts to define and address corruption. Comparative projects across periods, regions, or institutions are also welcome. The specific research project will be designed by the applicant and laid out in a proposal to accompany the application. The proposal must address the state of the field, specify the pertinent primary sources available for the study, include a research plan, and explain why the candidate wishes to pursue this topic generally and in the particular context of the UvA and the FP7 project.
The successful applicant will have a relevant Master’s degree; s/he will have a good working knowledge of all languages necessary to engage the relevant primary and secondary sources; good academic writing and presentation skills; good social and organizational academic skills.
Application Deadline is 15 April 2012.
