The Department of Social Studies of Medicine is seeking to hire at the rank of Assistant Professor (tenure-track).

The Department of Social Studies of Medicine is a multidisciplinary department (anthropology, history, sociology, biomedical ethics) that sees itself as a bridge between the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Faculty of Arts.
McGill University was founded in 1819 and is consistently ranked among the top 20 public universities in the world and among the top three in Canada. McGill is located in Montreal (http://www.montrealinternational.com/en/), a diverse multiethnic city with a sparkling cultural life. Montreal has been selected numerous times as the best city for students in North America. Montreal is safe, housing costs are among the lowest for cities of comparable size, and overall quality of life is outstanding.
McGill University is committed to equity in employment and diversity. It welcomes applications from Indigenous peoples, visible minorities, ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, women, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and others who may contribute to further diversification.
Candidates will be expected to teach courses within the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Faculty of Arts, and to carry out a program of research. The successful candidate will have potential or proven ability to develop an internationally recognized research program in ancient, medieval or early modern medicine, to obtain grants for their own research, and to contribute to the building of successful research projects and programs.
The candidate is expected to be actively involved in all aspects of McGill’s academic mission (research, teaching, supervision of a diverse body of graduate students and involvement in academic and administrative committees) and the mission of the Department of Social Studies of Medicine. McGill faculty members are expected to contribute to service activities within their units, the University, and the wider scholarly community. A demonstrated commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion is also expected.
