Applications are invited for a permanent post as Lecturer in History of Science, Technology or Medicine at the Centre for the History of Science Technology and Medicine (CHSTM), University of Manchester. Keen to broaden our teaching and research portfolio in the global history of science, technology and medicine (STM), we encourage applications from candidates with expertise in colonial, postcolonial or decolonized histories of science, medicine or technology. Candidates will have proven expertise in one of these fields (S, T or M), or a combination, as our Centre is dedicated to the integrated modern history of STM, along with science and health communication. We particularly encourage applications from candidates whose research focuses on such knowledges and practices in regions commonly understood to form part of the Global South, such as Africa, Latin America, South Asia or Southeast Asia. We will also consider applicants working on current or recent STM in other non-western contexts.
You will be expected to possess a compelling research vision with strong potential to develop an excellent research portfolio attractive to research funders, with a view to building research leadership in your chosen field. You will possess a competitive publication record in accordance with your career stage, and sustainable plans to publish further peer reviewed academic work. You will have viable plans to apply for research funding and will be fully supported in this by experienced colleagues. You will also be keen to organize seminars and conferences maintaining and further developing your network of research contacts.
You will support and enhance our teaching portfolio at undergraduate and postgraduate (MSc and PhD) levels. In addition to provision of innovative lectures and seminars, this will include playing an active role in undergraduate and postgraduate dissertation and project supervision, and taking on pastoral roles as an academic advisor. You will be supported in developing and delivering course units at undergraduate and postgraduate level, based on your area of research expertise. You will have the opportunity to supervise PhD students.
As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of age, sex, gender (or gender identity), ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
