The Department of History at the University of Houston invites applicants for the NEH-Cullen Chair in History and Medicine. Established in 2020 and housed in the History Department, this distinguished professorship is critical to the University’s endeavor to link the humanities and the professions. The holder of this Chair will be expected to train graduate students, teach undergraduate students, and develop and contribute to academic and community programs in History. This primary responsibility will be balanced with potential teaching and programming collaborations with the university’s health professions colleges.
