The UCLA Center for Economic History invites scholars who work in economic history to apply to come spend the 2009-10 academic year at UCLA, participate in the intellectual life of the economic history group, work on their own research projects, and teach a course if desired. Recipients must hold the Ph.D. or equivalent degree but can come from any discipline and work on any subject, geographic area, or period of economic history. Recent Ph.D.s are especially encouraged to apply. Successful applicants must be in residence at UCLA for the academic year and participate in the Center’s weekly workshop and proseminar. Compensation will depend on current salary, other sources of funding, and whether or not the person teaches, but will not exceed $72,000.
To apply, please send a CV, short research proposal, and representative article or other publication to Naomi Lamoreaux via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also need at least two letters of recommendation. There is no application deadline, but we will begin reviewing applications on December 1, 2008. UCLA is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and has a strong commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff.
