The Department of the History of Medicine of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine invites applications for tenure-track faculty at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The Department is committed to broadening the history of health and medicine, and seeks new colleagues who address areas not covered by existing faculty, specifically in the areas of pre-modern medicine, health, and healing before 1800, and in medicine, health and healing in East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Africa, or other geographical areas which would extend the reach of our Department. We seek scholars whose research is innovative and agenda-setting. Our teaching remit stretches across several divisions of the University, including PhD and online MA students within our department’s degree-granting programs, MD and MPH students within the broader schools of medicine and public health at Johns Hopkins, and undergraduates and graduate students through joint appointment in the Program of History of Science, Medicine, and Technology at the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. A successful candidate will bring energy and enthusiasm to this broad array of learners and be successful at reaching a range of audiences. In addition to excellence in historical scholarship and teaching they should also demonstrate the capacity to communicate the enduring relevance of historical analysis to potential audiences in clinical practice, health policy, and the general public. The Department of the History of Medicine is committed to diversity and equity; we seek candidates who will contribute to a climate that attracts and values students, faculty, and collaborators of all ethnicities, nationalities, and genders.
Applicants must have defended a Ph.D. by July 1, 2021. Applications and related materials are due by November 15, 2020.
