University of Copenhagen – Asst./Assoc. Professor, Medical Science Communication and/or Medical Science Heritage Production

Location: Denmark 
Institution Type: College/University 
Position Type: Assistant or Associate Professor

Medical Museion is announcing 1-2 positions for its integrated research, teaching, heritage and outreach programme, focusing on contemporary medical and health sciences in a cultural, aesthetic and historical perspective.

On the outreach side, we are developing research-based science communication practices for a variety of audiences – spanning from health professionals to the general public – in the form of exhibitions and web products, and with special attention to the aesthetics of science communication. On the acquisition side, we are in the process of developing research-based curatorial practices (heritage production) in close cooperation with research institutions, hospitals, pharma and medical device companies, and patient organisations in the region (museum 2.0)

The appointees are required to do research at an international level and research-based teaching; however most of the teaching obligations are substituted with museum work (exhibitions, social web work, acquisitions).

This is a short summary only. Please read the full announcement text here:
