The School of History is seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research
Assistant to work on the ERC-funded project, ‘*Dictatorship as experience:
a comparative history of everyday life and the ‘lived experience’ of
dictatorship in Mediterranean Europe (1922-1975)*’ under the direction of
the project’s Principal Investigator, Dr. Kate Ferris. The appointee will
have responsibility for the part of the project dealing with the Metaxas
(1936-1941) and Colonels’ (1967-1974) dictatorships in Greece.
The appointee will be responsible for all archival research relating to the
Greek case-study within the project and will be expected to write a
sole-authored monograph on an aspect of everyday life/the lived experience
of dictatorship under either Metaxas’ or the Colonels’ regimes and to
contribute to a co-authored comparative volume on everyday life/the lived
experience of dictatorship in Mediterranean Europe. Additionally, the
appointee will be responsible for producing and maintaining the project
website and will assist the project PI in organising conferences, workshops
and other project-related events.
