The Department for the History of Science and the Program in Women,
Gender and Sexuality [WGS] at Harvard University invite applications and
nominations for a tenure-track appointment that will be located
half-time in each program.  The appointment is intended to advance
research and teaching on questions and themes at the intersection of
history of science (including medicine and technology) and historical
and contemporary scholarship on women, gender, and sexuality. The area
of focus is open, but might include science and technology studies
(including biotechnology), modern life science, environmentalism and
ecology, non-Western science, medicine, and technology, and science
and/health policy.

The successful candidate must show promise of distinguished scholarship,
and be able to demonstrate a commitment to excellence in teaching
undergraduates interested in both women, gender and sexuality studies
and in the history of science.  He or she should also be able to teach
and advise at both doctoral and master’s levels.

All applicants must hold the doctoral degree by or before the fall
semester of 2010.  Harvard University is an equal opportunity,
affirmative-action employer and encourages applications from women
and/or ethnic minority candidates.

Letters of nomination are welcome.  Letters of application should be
accompanied by a current curriculum vitae, no more than two sample
publications, and a sample syllabus and/or teaching statement. Materials
should be sent in duplicate to: WGS and History of Science Search
