Tenure-track Faculty search, Drexel University

Science, Technology, and Society [STS] Program, Drexel University

The following job description is posted at:

The Science, Technology, and Society [STS] Program in collaboration
with the Department of History and Politics at Drexel University
expects to hire a tenure-track Assistant Professor. We invite
applications for this expected position at this time. The successful
applicant would begin September 1, 2013. This position continues the
re-invigoration of the research potential of the STS Program at Drexel
University, which included the successful recruitment in 2011 of both
a new Director and an Assistant Professor.

Although the particular sub-field is open, we are primarily interested
in candidates who investigate connections between health, science, and
society, with attention to how social, political, and economic
structures, policies, and/or cultural contexts inform medical
practice, medical technology, or medical knowledge. We are especially
interested in applicants with knowledge of research methods and strong
methodological skills (e.g., in-depth interviews, focus groups,
archival research, fieldwork, or statistical skills). We expect that
this person’s research and teaching, at both undergraduate and
graduate levels, will contribute to the STS Program, and that our new
colleague will participate in and initiate collaborations across the
Schools, Colleges, and Centers at Drexel.

Located in Philadelphia, Drexel is a privately endowed university
founded in 1891. With approximately 20,000 students, it has one of the
largest undergraduate cooperative education programs in the nation.
The University offers an attractive benefits package including tuition
remission, a generous retirement package with matching funds (up to
11%) and an opportunity to join an exceptional University, achieving
record growth and quality reputation. Drexel University is an Equal
Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. For more information about
Drexel University, please visit

Please apply online at: Only applications
submitted via the online system can be considered. The Department of
History and Politics is #3649 and this position is listed under it.
(The Department is simultaneously hiring in Political Science for an
Assistant Professor – this position is also listed in the online
application system.)

Candidates should include: 1) a cover letter; 2) curriculum vitae; 3)
up to three samples of your scholarly writing; and 4) the names,
institutional affiliation, and email addresses only of at least three
references. Please do not submit reference letters at this time as
such letters will be requested at a later date for short-listed
applicants. The successful applicant must have completed all
requirements for their PhD by August 15, 2013.

Review of applications will begin November 15, 2012 and continue until
filled. Please address all queries to Prof. Kelly Joyce at
