The Department of History at McMaster University invites applications for a tenure track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor in the History of Science and Technology. We are seeking a candidate who may engage with one or more of the cross-faculty fields and cooperative endeavors at the university, which include globalization, communication studies, cultural studies, multi-media, and the history of medicine.

The department has strong representation in the history of medicine with a cross-appointment in the faculty of Health Sciences, and the internationally renowned Medical School. We have also recently been given a generous gift to establish a Centre for Canadian History, and to hire a senior Canadian colleague as the first Lyman R. Wilson Professor in Canadian History. We are partners in McMaster’s Institute for Globalization and the Human Condition in the new MA in Globalization.

The successful candidate will have a Ph.D., demonstrated strengths in teaching and research, with a clearly defined program of research which will result in publication. Duties will include teaching a full range of undergraduate and graduate courses.

The starting date for the appointment is 1 July 2005. The minimum salary will be the floor of the rank at that time. Applications, including curriculum vitae, samples of publications, and letters from three academic referees should be addressed to Professor Virginia H.
