PhD Scholarship in Economic History at Lund University

Outstanding international students are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in development economics at Lund University. The deadline for applying is June 16, 2019.

Lund University School of Economics and Management is one of eight faculties within Lund University. More than 4 000 students and 450 researchers, teachers and other staff are engaged here in training and research in economic history, business administration, business law, informatics, economics, statistics and research policy.

The Department of Economic History is a research-intensive department that employs about 100 people: researchers, teachers, technical/administrative staff, and Ph.D. candidates. The department has a large PhD programme and co-ordinates three international Master programmes. The Department has a well established reputation for wide-ranging research with an emphasis on long-term processes, and with economic theory and quantitative methods as important methodological tools. Strong research areas at the department include economic growth and structural change, innovation, energy and sustainability, development economics, and economic demography, as well as financial history and education and the labour market. More information is available at the Department's website: http://www.ekh.lu.se/en.

Project

This PhD-position is a part of the project In the shadow of the factories: The artisans before and during the industrial breakthrough, funded by Handelsbankens forskningsstiftelser. The purpose of the project is to study the dynamics of craft production in relation to the industrial, social and institutional development during the latter half of the nineteenth century. For this purpose, the project members build a longitudinal database comprising craftsmen and their businesses in Sweden. There are great opportunities for the PhD-student to formulate research questions within the scope of the project. The database is based upon the primary documents of the official industrial statistics. Since the material will be entirely or partly machine read, the PdD-student is supposed to have an interest in, and ideally, previous experience of digital methods.
