Candidates must be able to teach one or both of our core undergraduate survey courses in the history of pre-modern science (“Antiquity to Renaissance” and/or “Scientific Revolution”) along with the parallel graduate seminars that prepare Ph.D. students for qualifying exams. A Ph.D. is required, but we will accept applications from doctoral students expected to fulfill Ph.D. degree requirements by July 1, 2023. The Department is committed to conducting a broad and inclusive search for a candidate who, through their research, teaching, and service, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community.

Applications should include a cover letter, CV, a description of scholarly and teaching activity, and three letters of reference for application at the assistant professor level; letters of reference are not required from applicants at the rank of associate professor with tenure and are optional for the rank of full professor. All application materials should be submitted online via Interfolio at: http://apply.interfolio.com/113970. Review of applications will begin on November 7, 2022, and will continue until the position is filled.
