The University of Reading’s Centre for International Business History (CIBH) is offering a fully-funded studentship for a Ph.D. project on the evolution of household expenditure and household behaviour over the twentieth century. The project will involve using British family expenditure survey data, together with other sources, to examine changes in household behaviour in areas such as housing, consumer durables, and leisure activities, and their determinants. The successful candidate will have good quantitative skills and a strong interest in business and economic history.

Centre for International Business History is also happy to discuss fully-funded studentships in other areas of business and economic history.
