The Edinburgh Medical School has a strong tradition of excellent research, teaching and knowledge exchange in the social sciences. We are seeking two strategic appointments in this area to join the Social Studies of Health and Medicine group within the Centre for Population Health Sciences, Usher Institute to develop cutting edge programmes of work across disciplinary boundaries to interrogate the compelling questions generated by the increasing complexity of biomedicine and its interface with individuals and society. Applicants must be committed to working in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative environment and support the development of interdisciplinary research across medical sociology, science and technology studies, bioethics, law and health policy.  We are particularly keen to recruit scholars with a track record of research in public participation in health policy, digital research and the sociology of data science, and the design/user interface for health technologies and other interventions, but would welcome enquiries from outstanding social scientists in other related fields. 

Informal inquiries can be made to Professor Sarah Cunningham-Burley, sarah.c.burley@ed.ac.uk

We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of gender or ethnic group. As women and members of ethnic minorities are currently under-represented in posts at this level we particularly encourage applications from members of these groups. As a global University, we are interested in attracting candidates working in all parts of the world and can offer relocation support.
