The Wellcome Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL seeks applications for a three-year research fellowship on any field of the history of Central Asia and medicine. PhD or an equivalent research degree, and an active programme of research in Kazak and Uzbek, are required. Remuneration will be in the range from the low to mid-30,000 pounds sterling, depending on seniority. The fellowship may be taken up as early as January 2007. UCL will be offering language studies in Kazak and Uzbek, and hopes that it might be possible to raise funds for a longer term academic post. A letter of application, curriculum vita, and the names of three referees are due by post or email to Prof. Cook by 17 November 2006. For further information, please see or contact the Director, Harold J. Cook, at [email protected] or 210 Euston Rd., London NW1 2BE, UK.
