The University of Minnesota invites applications for a full-time, twelve-month, tenure-track Assistant Professorship in the History of Medicine with special responsibilities for oral history. A Ph.D. in history of medicine or related field with special interest in the history of American academic medicine, health policy or health care institutions, as well as good interpersonal and communication skills, and a commitment to collaborative research are required. Experience in conducting and analyzing oral histories, and knowledge of oral history methodology, is desirable. The incumbent will work in partnership with the on-going collaborative effort between the Academic Health Center and the University Libraries to document and preserve the history of the University of Minnesotas Academic Health Center. During the duration of the oral history project, the person hired will be relieved of most teaching responsibilities and instead will be expected to devote most of her/his time to the AHC History Project: conducting oral histories with current and past members of the AHC and with other individuals whose experience is relevant to that history; editing those transcripts; and depositing them in University Archives. At the conclusion of the oral history project the incumbent will assume the ordinary teaching load of the History of Medicine Program. The appointee will be expected to maintain an active scholarly research program and demonstrate her/his academic merit through peer-reviewed publications. Salary is competitive. The review of applications will begin February 25, 2008. The search will remain open until the position is filled. The start date is negotiable.
Applicants should submit a letter of interest, a CV, a writing sample no longer than 25-30 pages, and the names of three references to the University of Minnesota on-line employment system, http://www1.umn.edu/ohr/.
