PhD position on 'The historical development of gender occupational segmentation and stereotyping of medical specializations, 1950-2020' (1.0 FTE)
We are looking for a candidate for a PhD project titled 'The historical development of gender occupational segmentation and stereotyping of medical specializations, 1950-2020'. This project aims to determine the origins of occupational stereotypes in the medical profession in the Netherlands since the Second World War. It poses the question how and why these stereotypes change over time, and how they affect the majority gender share of occupations (i.e. the share of male and female workers within occupations) and the (self-)perceived status as well as the relative remuneration of men and women and the working culture within the medical sector. A detailed project description can be found here.
The project is part of a larger transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary research cluster on 'Differential Pathways to Gender-Inclusive labour markets' within the research programme SCOOP : Roadmaps to Resilient Societies. In total, three PhD students will be working in this project, in close collaboration with each other. For this particular project the first and daily supervisor will be from History and the second supervisor from Social and Organizational Psychology. SCOOP is a research and training centre dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of sustainable cooperation as a key feature of resilient societies. SCOOP brings together researchers of the University of Groningen, Utrecht University, VU Amsterdam, Erasmus University Rotterdam, and Radboud University Nijmegen. The PhD candidate will participate in the SCOOP PhD training programme .

- (almost) finished a (Research) Master's in the domain of (economic) history, or a related discipline such as sociology;
- a solid training in historical and/or social science research (being familiar with both fields is a plus for this position);

- excellent command of English and academic writing skills;
