Jessuca Reinisch seeks two Post Docs and two PhD Students for four year project

Applications are invited for two post-doc positions as well as two PhD studentships for work on a research project with Jessica Reinischat at Birkbeck College, University of London. The four year project is titled "The Reluctant Internationalists: A History of Public Health and International Organizations, Movements, and Experts in Twentieth-Century Europe." Two postdocs and two PhD students will be hired to start work in September/October, 2013.

She previously ran the Balzan Project at Birkbeck on "Reconstruction in the Immediate Aftermath of War: A Comparative Study of Europe, 1945-1950" for Eric Hobsbawm. Funded by his Prize from the Balzan Foundation, this project ran over several years, organizing 4 workshops and a major conference between 2005 and 2008. Its activities provide a kind of model for how Jessica's new project will be running and you can get an idea of this from the Balzan pages on the Birkbeck website at www.balzan.bbk.ac.uk.
