Location: University of Strathclyde
Contract: Fixed (3 years), full time
Closes: 5th June 2016
Applications are invited for a three year Lectureship within the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH) Glasgow at the University of Strathclyde (www.strath.ac.uk/cshhh).
The CSHHH Glasgow was established in 2005 as a research collaboration in the Medical Humanities. It is now an internationally-recognised research environment and postgraduate community, founded on funding from the Welcome Trust and from the UK’s research councils. The successful applicant will be embedded in this community and will also be able to draw upon the wider collaborative environment in the School of Humanities, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and the wider University.
The Centre seeks to attract an outstanding early career scholar to work in the CSHHH Glasgow. We are seeking candidates with growing reputations for excellence in research and teaching. They should be capable of contributing to existing undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes in the history of health and medicine. While this is a three-year appointment in the first instance, the Centre has a good track-record in securing external funding to develop post-doctoral careers and the successful candidate will be able to articulate plans in this direction.
Applicants will have a good honours degree in a relevant subject, as well as a PhD in the History of Health and Medicine or a related field, or be near completion of their PhD. It is essential applicants have research interests in the relevant field and have a body of related high quality publications.
The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to teach more widely within the History BA degree and at postgraduate level. History at Strathclyde has teaching pathways in ‘Scotland and the World’, in ‘Peace, Conflict and Identity’ and in ‘Oral History, as well as in the History of Health and Medicine. It also provides world-leading training in the Scottish Oral History Centre (http://www.strath.ac.uk/humanities/research/sohc/). An ability to connect with one or more of these would be an advantage.
Formal interviews for this post are likely to be held on Friday 17th June 2016.
