2 x 4-year Wellcome postdocs with Connecting 3 Worlds project on Africa (Birkbeck) & Latin America (Exeter/UNAM)

The Wellcome-funded Connecting Three Worlds project is hiring two 4-year postdoctoral researchers to start 1st October 2021, to develop projects on the connection between health, medicine and socialism since WWII in transnational context. A post based at the Department of History, Classics and Archaeology at Birkbeck, University of London will focus on Africa, working with Dr Sarah Marks; and a post based at the Department of History, University of Exeter in conjunction with Professor Edna Suárez-Díaz at UNAM, Mexico will focus on Latin America in transnational perspective. The researchers will develop their own book projects with support and mentoring, and will also form part of the wider Connecting 3 Worlds research team led by Prof Dora Vargha, Dr Sarah Marks & Prof Edna Suárez-Díaz to work collaboratively on conferences, events, publications and public engagement. We define health in its broadest terms, and welcome applications from scholars in History, or from Science and Technology Studies or Medical Anthropology whose research has a strong historical component. These posts include a generous allowance for research and conference travel in addition to salary.
