We wish to appoint two full-time post-doctoral research associates,
for 4-years from September 2012, to be part of a European Research
Council funded project ‘Economics in the Public Sphere: USA, UK,

five members, including one research assistant/administrator and two
Candidates must have an outstanding record in a field related to the
project (history of social science, communications studies, and
sociology of knowledge) and an excellent knowledge of the economic and
political history of the country case selected. Preferred applicants
will have experience in one or more of the research methods: archival
research, oral history, ethnographic observation, content and textual
analysis of media. Candidates must have completed their doctorate
prior to taking up the appointment.
In addition to pursuing their own original research, post holders are
expected to help maintain a project website, organize and participate
in project seminars and workshops, and provide editorial assistance.
They will be expected to produce at least one research paper a year on
a topic relevant to the project and assist in compiling and editing a
collected volume of papers. All staff will be based in Cambridge.
The project studies ‘economic journalism’ as a site for the production
of public economic knowledge. The practices of journalists will be
examined to reveal how they parse competing claims of expertise by
academic economists, other social scientists and by laymen. The
project takes a cross-national approach examining the economic press
the in USA, UK, France, Poland, and Brazil. Cultural standards of
trust, the history and economics of the media, and the history of
economics and social movements will be used to explain the emergence
of distinct national genres of ‘economic journalism’. The project
offers an original perspective on how public knowledge of the economy
is an iterative process engaging journalists, academics and laymen and
explores the implications of this knowledge formation for the
possibilities of public support for economic action and policies.
