PhD position ‘The historical development of gender occupational segmentation and stereotyping of medical specializations, 1950-2020’ – deadline 7 Jan. 2022

The Department of History & Art History at Utrecht University is looking for a candidate (1.0 fte) for a PhD project titled ‘The historical development of gender occupational segmentation and stereotyping of medical specializations, 1950-2020’. This project aims to determine the origins of occupational stereotypes in the medical profession in the Netherlands since the Second World War. It poses the question how and why these stereotypes change over time, and how they affect the majority gender share of occupations (i.e. the share of male and female workers within occupations) and the (self-)perceived status as well as the relative remuneration of men and women and the working culture within the medical sector. A detailed project description link can be found here.The project is part of a larger transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary research cluster on ‘Differential Pathways to Gender-Inclusive labour markets’ within the research programme SCOOP: Roadmaps to Resilient Societies.

Applications should be submitted by 7 January 2022
