In cooperation with the Centre for the Social History of Limburg (SHCL) and the Centre for the Regional History of Limburg (RHCL), the Department of History in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences offers a PhD position in transnational mining history. The project centres around the Domaniale Mijn, a mining company operating between Kerkrade and Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle) on the border of Dutch and German territory. The archives of the company have recently been catalogued and offer a wide range of opportunities for research, also in a comparative framework. Different perspectives, ranging from business history to socio-economic history, and from the history of technology to environmental history can be fruitfully explored. The candidate’s preference and background will play a major role in the focus and approach that the project will eventually adopt.
Candidates are expected to possess:
- A (Research) Master degree in History or a related field;
- Excellent (passive) knowledge of Dutch and of German;
- Outstanding writing skills;
- Ability to work both independently and as part of a team
The researcher will be based at Maastricht University, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and undertake a 6-month secondment at the Sociaal Historisch Centrum voor Limburg (Centre for the Social History of Limburg) SHCL, the Netherlands and/or the Regionaal Historisch Centrum voor Limburg (Centre for the Regional History of Limburg), the Netherlands.
