Name: Wellcome Trust University Award Candidate Search at the University of Strathclyde

Location: University of Strathclyde

Application Deadline: May 06, 2015

Sponsoring Institution: University of Strathclyde


Details:

The University of Strathclyde is currently planning to support a University Award application to the Wellcome Trust in the Medical Humanities and History (http://www.wellcome.ac.uk/Funding/Medical-humanities/Funding-schemes/University-awards/index.htm).  Its Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH Glasgow) is an internationally recognised research environment with a focus on the experiences of health and medicine in the modern period around the world.

If the candidate’s application to the Wellcome Trust is successful, this award will lead to a permanent lectureship in the CSHHH. We invite applications from those that have an established track-record of research, teaching and post-graduate supervision in the history of health and medicine.  CSHHH Glasgow is part of a wider History team in the School of Humanities, so an ability to collaborate with colleagues in the following areas would be an advantage: Scotland and the World; Peace, Conflict and Identity; and Oral History.  The successful applicant will be expected to work up a preliminary application to the Wellcome Trust with colleagues from the CSHHH by July 2015 and a full application by September 2015.

If you would like to apply to be a candidate for this Wellcome Trust University Award competition, please send an up to date CV and five-year research plan to Dr Matthew Smith at m.smith@strath.ac.uk by 6 May 2015. Inquiries may also be made to Dr Smith via email or 0141 444 8353.
