Emploi –  3 year post-doc at Imperial College London

The Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine at Imperial College London is seeking a 3-year postdoctoral research associate to participate in a Wellcome Trust-funded programme of research into the topic: One medicine? Investigating human and animal disease circa 1850-2015. 

You will contribute to a work package that examines the institutional, intellectual and disciplinary contexts where research into human and animal diseases intersected during the period 1920-2000. The aim is to expand conceptions of the animal’s role in research beyond that of a model of human disease, and to identify the multiple ways in which animals and their diseases have shaped the history of biomedicine. You will take ownership of this research, while also working closely and synergistically with other members of the research team.

You will have a PhD in the modern history of science, technology or medicine. You will be actively researching the twentieth century history of the biological or medical sciences, broadly construed, and have knowledge of at least one of the following national contexts: Britain, France, Germany, Canada and the USA. You will also have a strong publication record, and be committed to engaging with a range of academic and non-academic audiences.
