Uni Melbourne is hiring, that’s h-i-r-i-n-g

Thanks to philanthropists who are stumping up $5m

The university is in the market for a continuing chair in economic history. The brief includes “revitalising and leading research and teaching in economic history” and “contributing to external debate on the relevance of economic history to better understand and respond to current economic conditions.”

The chair is funded by a gift from the Peter Griffin and Terry Swan Foundation, which already supports expanding the university’s economic history curriculum.
