Lecturer in History of Health and Medicine, University of Strathclyde (2 years)

The School of Humanities seeks to appoint an outstanding early career scholar to work in the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH) Glasgow. We are seeking candidates with growing reputations for excellence in research and teaching. Candidates should be capable of contributing to existing undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes in the history of health and medicine and across the subject area more widely. While this is a two-year appointment in the first instance, the School of Humanities has a strong track-record in securing external funding to develop post-doctoral careers and the successful candidate will be able to articulate plans in this direction.

The CSHHH Glasgow was established in 2005 between the University of Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian University (see www.strath.ac.uk/cshhh). It is now an internationally-recognised research environment and postgraduate community founded on funding from both universities, from the Wellcome 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 and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.

As a Lecturer in the History of Health and Medicine the successful candidate will contribute to academic research, teaching, training and public engagement activities in the CSHHH Glasgow while also teaching more widely within the History BA degree and at postgraduate level. History at Strathclyde has teaching pathways in Scottish and British History since c. 1500, and in the History of Modern Conflict and Reconciliation, as well as in the History of Health and Medicine. It also provides world-leading training in Oral History. Applicants should demonstrate the ability to teach in a minimum of two of these pathways.

The closing date for applications is 8th October 2014.
