Job Type: Faculty, Tenure Track
Application Deadline: November 7, 2014
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. A PhD or ABD is required.
Submit a letter of application, a CV, a teaching portfolio, a sample of scholarship, and three letters of recommendation. 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.
It is expected that the scholar hired for this position will teach courses on the history of modern science, technology, and medicine in general as well as more focused topics and courses in their area of research and/or regional specialization.
Review of applications will begin on November 7, 2014. The position is open until filled.
Applications are only accepted through Interfolio ByCommittee. Please go to http://apply.interfolio.com/25504 to apply.
