Tenure track faculty position: Assistant or Associate Professor in History of Medicine at JHU


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 seeks to hire a historian of health and modern medicine in geographical or thematic areas not covered by existing Department faculty. We especially welcome candidates whose work includes a transnational or global dimension, who demonstrate innovative methodologies of historical research, who engage with the technological and material aspects of medical knowledge and practice, and who think in an integrated way about the history of science, technology and medicine and their place on both medical and arts & sciences campuses.

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 in the  schools of medicine and public health, and undergraduates and graduate students in the Program of History of Science, Medicine, and Technology at the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. In addition to excellence in historical scholarship and teaching, the successful candidate should also demonstrate a willingness to communicate the relevance of historical analysis with energy and enthusiasm to a variety of learners and audiences across Johns Hopkins and beyond. The Department of the History of Medicine is committed to diversity, equity, and justice; we seek candidates who will contribute to a climate that attracts and values students, faculty, and collaborators of all ethnicities, races, nationalities, and genders.
