Two academic appointments in the History of Medicine

The Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at University College London seeks two full-time historians of medicine to complement the work of current members of staff. Sub-field and rank open, but two strong preferences have been identified: 1) an historian of the eighteenth century, and 2) an historian working on medicine and health in an area other than Europe, China, or India, especially Islamic medicine since 1500, medicine in Eastern Europe and Russia, or medicine in North America from an international perspective.

Minimum requirements are a PhD in hand, and a track-record of publication in the proposed field of research. Salary according to rank and accomplishment, in the range from about £35,000 to £55,000.

Applications are due by 9 February 2007; they may be submitted electronically or by post. It is anticipated that interviews will be conducted during the last week in March. The successful candidates will be expected to take up their duties in September. Please send a letter outlining previous research and teaching and lines of future research, together with a CV and the details of three persons who can be contacted for letters of reference, to Harold J. Cook, The Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL, 210 Euston Rd., London NW1 2BE, UK; or to [email protected].
