Applications are invited for 2 x Early Stage Researcher (ESR) Fellowships funded as part of Marie Curie Initial Training Networks, under the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme. The project will run from 1 September 2013 to 31 August 2017.
MACROHIST aims to provide a new generation of European doctoral students with expertise in both macroeconomics and financial history.
The training will combine coursework and methodological tools taught at the academic nodes with on-site training in project management and internships/secondments with private and public sector partners.

The duration of each contract is expected to be 24 months.
The distinguishing features are:

  1. formal coursework with emphasis on rigorous empirical methods and exposure to other disciplines in PhD courses, workshops and summer schools;

  2. mentors/supervisors will be appointed for each researcher hired by the network

  3. internships with private and public sector partners

(d) opportunities to forge relationships with faculty and students throughout Europe through exchanges, workshops, and virtual networks.
