History of Medicine Postdoctoral Fellowship, Yale University

Yale University invites applications for a two year postdoctoral
fellowship in the Section of the History of Medicine, School of Medicine,
beginning 1 July 2009.  Historians working on any geographic area of the
history of medicine since 1800 are encouraged to apply, but preference
will be given to applicants whose primary research interests are in the
history of women’s health or in the history of health advocacy.

The fellow will interact with faculty and graduate students in the Yale
Program in the History of Science and Medicine, and will teach a
one-semester undergraduate course in Yale College each year.  The
fellowship provides a salary of $44,500 plus health benefits, and an
annual research stipend of $3,000.  The successful applicant must have
completed the Ph.D. degree before 1 July 2009.  The fellowship is open to
all candidates regardless of citizenship.  Yale University is an equal
opportunity/affirmative action employer and actively encourages
applications from minority and women scholars.

Applications should be submitted via email to [email protected] with the
subject heading POSTDOC.  Applicants must submit (MS Word or PDF) a letter
of interest, curriculum vitae, and writing sample (an article for
publication or section from the dissertation), and the names of three
people who have agreed to write a letter of recommendation.  The deadline
for submission is March 1, 2009, but applications will be considered on a
rolling basis as they are received, and therefore applicants are
encouraged to submit as soon as possible.
