Call for Applications: History of Science and Women, Gender, & Sexuality

The Department for the History of Science and the Program in Women, Gender and Sexuality [WGS] at Harvard University invite applications and nominations for a tenure-track appointment that will be located half-time in each program.  The appointment is intended to advance research and teaching on questions and themes at the intersection of history of science (including medicine and technology) and historical and contemporary scholarship on women, gender, and sexuality. The area of focus is open, but might include science and technology studies (including biotechnology), modern life science, environmentalism and ecology, non-Western science, medicine, and technology, and science and/health policy.

The successful candidate must show promise of distinguished scholarship, and be able to demonstrate a commitment to excellence in teaching undergraduates interested in both women, gender and sexuality studies and in the history of science.  He or she should also be able to teach and advise at both doctoral and master's levels.

All applicants must hold the doctoral degree by or before the fall semester of 2010.  Harvard University is an equal opportunity, affirmative-action employer and encourages applications from women and/or ethnic minority candidates.

Letters of nomination are welcome.  Letters of application should be accompanied by a current curriculum vitae, no more than two sample publications, and a sample syllabus and/or teaching statement. Materials should be sent in duplicate to: WGS and History of Science Search Committee, c/o Marcus Dahmen, Department of the History of Science,
Science Center 371, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 02138.   Email:

Deadline for applications is October 15, 2009, and interviews may be scheduled shortly thereafter.
