One year teaching associate position, University of Strathclyde


12 month teaching associate position at the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare, University of Strathclyde:

Applications are invited for a fixed term (12 months) Teaching Associate within the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH) Glasgow, at the University of Strathclyde (www.strath.ac.uk/cshhh).  The CSHHH Glasgow was established in 2005 as a collaboration in the Medical Humanities.  It is now an internationally-recognised teaching, research and postgraduate community supported by funding from the Wellcome Trust and from the UK’s research councils.

This post is designed to attract an outstanding early career scholar to work in the CSHHH Glasgow.  We are seeking candidates with growing reputations for excellence in research-led teaching.  The successful candidate should be capable of delivering and contributing to existing undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes in the history of health and healthcare.  Classes include 'Disease and Society', a survey class for second-year students, 'Dangerous Drugs and Magic Bullets', which encourages third and final year students to look at the changing nature of medicines since 1600, and the Masters class 'Governing Highs and Health', which focuses on the consumption and control of intoxicants in western societies. A good honours degree and PhD (or equivalent professional experience) in appropriate discipline, as well as the ability to translate knowledge of advances in the subject area into teaching and assessment methods and materials are essential.

The Centre has a good track-record in securing external funding to develop post-doctoral careers and the successful candidate will be able to articulate plans in this direction.  Please contact the Director of the CSHHH Glasgow, Dr Laura Kelly, for more details; L.e.kelly@strath.ac.uk

Formal interviews for this post will be held on Tuesday, 17 April 2018 and the closing date for applications is 25 March 2018.
