A PhD in history of science and technology or a related field is required by the time of appointment, evidence of excellence in teaching commensurate with experience, and publications appropriate to the candidate’s discipline and experience.
The Division of Arts & Humanities at UC San Diego, in partnership with The Huntington Library, announces a search for an entry-level Assistant Professor specializing in the History of Early Modern Science. The successful candidate will be appointed in the Department of History ;with membership in the Science Studies Program. During the first five years of employment, the appointee will have up to two years of full-time research as a fellow in residence at The Huntington (the second year subject to approval). The department is therefore searching for a scholar whose research will engage deeply with The Huntington’s collections.
