History of Medicine. The University of Chicago’s Committee on Conceptual and Historical Studies of Science and the Department of History invite applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in the history of medicine to begin in Autumn Quarter 2013. Applications are welcome from all areas of the history of medicine, but particularly twentieth-century medicine. In addition to courses in their special research areas, candidates should be prepared to teach general history of medicine and should have a good knowledge of the social and cultural environment in which medical theories and practices have developed. Chicago’s programs are quite interdisciplinary, and so candidates should be ready to interact with faculty and students from an array of different disciplines. Chicago values diversity among its students, staff, and faculty and strongly encourages applications from women and underrepresented minority scholars. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in hand by April, 2013.
Consideration of applications will begin on October 15, 2012 and continue until the application deadline of December 15, 2012. We intend to hold preliminary interviews at the History of Science Society Meeting, Nov. 15-18, 2012. Application materials must be submitted online at the University of Chicago’s Academic Career Opportunities website at: http://tinyurl.com/c8zz3fn. Applicants must include a cover letter describing their competencies and plans, a curriculum vitae, and a writing sample. Three letters of recommendation are also required and should be mailed to: Chair of the Search Committee, The Committee on Conceptual and Historical Studies of Science, The University of Chicago, 1126 E. 59th St., Chicago, IL 60637. Inquiries and questions may be directed to Robert J. Richards at firstname.lastname@example.org. Early application is strongly recommended. The University of Chicago is AA/EOE.
