The Department of History & Politics at Drexel University invites
applications for up to two full-time, tenure-track positions in History,
beginning fall 2012. The Department will consider applications at both the
Assistant Professor and Associate Professor ranks. These positions mark the
beginning of an expansion of the research potential of the Department of
History & Politics. While the particular sub-field is open, we are
primarily interested in candidates who can add to our existing strengths in
the history of science, technology, medicine and the environment.
Candidates at the associate professor level may also be considered to
direct Drexel's Program in Science, Technology & Society. For that position
we will consider historians as well as candidates in sociology,
anthropology, political science, and other STS-focused fields. For both
positions research centered on Africa or Asia may be viewed favorably.
Candidates will also be expected to contribute to the Department's current
and future undergraduate and graduate curricula. Review of applications
will begin November 15, 2011.

The History & Politics Department is especially interested in qualified
candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our
academic community.
