Vacant position: Postdoctoral Researcher in Twentieth-Century U.S. History.
The Roosevelt Study Center (RSC) is a research and conference center for modern U.S. history and U.S.-European relations and is located in a beautiful Abbey in the historic heart of Middelburg, the Netherlands. The Roosevelt Study Center opened its doors to the public in 1986 and for over 25 years now has been the location of numerous conferences, seminars, lectures, exhibits, and essay award presentations. The RSC library holdings include primary source materials on modern U.S. history and Dutch-American relations that are unique in Europe. The research interests of the RSC staff include U.S.-Dutch relations in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, U.S. immigration, cultural and religious history, the U.S. modern South, and various aspects of U.S.-European relations during the cultural Cold War.
For the research project “The Roosevelt Legacy in Transatlantic Relations” we offer a three-year fulltime position for a Postdoctoral Researcher with a special interest in Theodore, Franklin or Eleanor Roosevelt. We specifically invite proposals for a research project on Eleanor Roosevelt and human rights but also welcome proposals on Theodore Roosevelt or Franklin D. Roosevelt and aspects of U.S.-European relations. The successful candidate is expected to complete a monograph on this topic or at least three articles for publication in peer-reviewed journals within the three-year period. In addition, he/she will cooperate as a team member of the staff in other RSC activities, such as conferences, seminars, and lecture series.
