It is a one year position (possibly renewable for one more year) at the Institute for Economic and Social History of the University of Vienna.

Successful applicants will work on the topic of accounting as innovation broadly defined, and will be responsible for DATAREV subproject 3 (as defined here: https://datarev.univie.ac.at/about-the-project/sub-projects/).
We welcome applications from young scholars (up to four years after their thesis defense) with a background in economic history, business history, social history and the history of science and technology (including the history of economics).
The deadline for applications is Sunday, 11th December 2022. The application package should contain: a letter of motivation, a cv including a list of publications, the name and email addresses of at least two referees and a research proposal connected with DATAREV subproject 3.
