Centre for History and Economics


The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation have made available funds for a post-doctoral Fellowship at the University of Cambridge. The Fellowship is associated with the MacArthur network on Poverty and Inequality in Broader Perspectives, and the Fellow will work with the other members of this network, in particular Professors Amartya Sen and Sudhir Anand, Jean Drèze and Stephan Klasen. The project will pay special attention to analytical issues in the measurement and evaluation of inequality, with primary focus on non-income information. The stipend will be from £19,371 to £22,785, depending on age and experience, plus pension contributions. The Fellowship will be tenable for one or two years starting on 1 October 1998. The Fellowship may be combined with a College affiliation. It will be administrated by the Centre for History and Economics at King's College.

Applications, including a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interests, and the applicant's e-mail address, should be sent to the network administrator, Asha Patel, Centre for History and Economics, King's College, Cambridge, CB2 1ST, who can be contacted for further information by phone on (3)31197, fax (3)31198, or e-mail ap10012@hermes.cam.ac.uk.
