Post-doctoral researchers

Post-doctoral researchers

The research program is home both to post-docs working on funded projects and to independent post-docs with their own projects.

Unfortunately we do not currently have any vacancies of post-doctoral positions on our research projects.

Employed on research projects

Dr Oliver Dunn

Dr Oliver Dunn first worked on the project as a research assistant collecting occupational data before embarking on graduate work. He rejoined the research program as a research associate in 2015 and has been working primarily on the transport project since then with a focus on coastal shipping.

Dr Xuesheng You

Dr Xuesheng You did his Ph.D. thesis as part of the research program. He is now a research associate on the transport project where he works mainly on railways and occupational data. but continues to work on his thesis topic of women's work alongside this. He also created the Cambridge Group's versions of the ICeM datasets which are central to a number of projects in the Cambridge Group.

Independent post-docs

He will shortly be beginning an ESRC funded project working on migration, urbanisation and wages. Some of this work will be done in collaboration with Leigh Shaw-Taylor and he will be using a number of our datasets for his project.

Sebastian Keibek did his BA, M.Phil and Ph.D on the project. He now holds a Junior Research Fellowship at Queens College, Cambridge. He works primarily on male occupational structure using a combination of testamentary records, parish registers and census data.
