Research Associate in the History of Twentieth-Century Physiology & Genetics

This is an opportunity to work on a Wellcome Trust funded project on the dog in science and medicine in the twentieth century, focusing particularly on genetics and physiology.

You will join a project where former members have worked on the dog in veterinary medicine and the behavioural sciences, and on changing attitudes to the risks associated with dogs. This post would suit scholars with a background in the history of biology, the history of the biomedical science, or the history of medicine.

Your key responsibilities will be to engage in independent research closely related to the aims of the grant, developing publications also closely related to the aims of the grant, including articles in peer reviewed journals and work towards an academic monograph.

You should have completed, or shortly be about to hold a PhD, (or equivalent), in the history of biology, or the history of medicine, or the history of veterinary medicine in the twentieth century.
