Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh The Henry Wade Fellowship in the History of Military Surgery
£30,000 pa pro rata (20 hours per week. 30 month fixed term) Location: The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Edinburgh
The Council of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh seek to award a 30-month Fellowship in the History of Military Surgery. The Fellow will be a published senior curator or social historian of military or medical history with extensive contemporary exhibition display experience. Good communication and organisational skills.
The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh houses some of the most significant surgical and anatomical/pathological collections in the world, including the Charles Bell collection purchased in 1825. The collections reflect the predominance of Scots trained surgeons and surgical pioneers in military service since the 18th century.
