The Department of History at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania seeks a historian of science, technology, or medicine to begin as a full-time tenure-track assistant professor in July 2015.

The search committee will consider scholars whose research examines any aspect of the history of science, technology, or medicine in the world outside of the United States between the early 1600s and the end of the 19th century. The committee seeks candidates whose work is embedded within broader social, economic, and cultural processes; whose work has a global, transnational, or colonial aspect; and, whose work is confined neither to the history of the philosophy of science nor to the intellectual history of a discrete scientist.

Candidates for this position must address their comprehension of and commitment to diversity, the liberal arts mission, and the teacher-scholar model in their application materials.
