The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) aim to support the career development and training of researchers by funding excellent research and providing attractive working conditions, the MSCA offer high quality professional opportunities open to researchers of any age, nationality or discipline.

The Department of Historical Studies at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Trondheim, Norway) encourages submissions in the Marie Curie CA Action in the fields of historical demography or economic history, in particular of candidates interested in excess female mortality early in life​.

Although gender discrimination, in the form of sex-selective abortion, female infanticide and the mortal neglect of young girls, constitutes a pervasive feature of many contemporary developing countries, the historical experience of European countries has received little attention. The conventional narrative ​argues that there is little evidence of gender discrimination resulting in excess female mortality in infancy and childhood. However, recent research suggests that this issue was much more important than previously thought. Excess female mortality was not necessarily the result of ill-treatment of young girls. In high-mortality environments as those present in the past, a discrimination on the way girls were fed or treated when ill, as well as the amount of work which they were entrusted with, resulted in more girls dying from the combined effect of undernutrition and illness.

Relying extensively in a wide array of historical sources and the use of quantitative methods, the aim of this project is threefold. Firstly, it traces the importance of missing girls in his​torical Europe, both across regions and over time. Secondly, it identifies the factors that explain the observed variation in the extent of discriminatory practices, as well as those triggering its demise. Lastly, the project explores the societal effects of this behavior, thus contributing to the growing literature on the link between gender inequality and economic development.

The deadline for applications is March 25th. Please find all the information, as well as the complete project proposal, in the following link:
