In association with an Imperial College-wide competition to appoint a significant number of lecturers across its various faculties, the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine invites applications from historians of science, technology and/or medicine post 1800.
The Centre was rated the number one (out of 83) history unit in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. It seeks applicants with internationally-recognised research expertise (or the clear potential for this). Ideally, their research will include an element of policy, economics and/or commerce, and applicants should be willing to develop the relevance of these elements to contemporary issues. They should have a record of winning research funding for their own research and to support related research projects, or be prepared to develop this capability during the early years in post. Candidates who already hold a university post are eligible to apply.
The closing date for applications is 4 January 2011. Applicants will first be assessed at departmental, then faculty level, with decisions made by the end of March 2011. For further details about the initiative, see http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/employment/lectureships
