UCL Centre for the History of Medicine wishes to appoint two Teaching Fellows to teach modules on the intercalated BSc in History of Medicine (a one year degree course for third year medical students) and the MA in History of Medicine (job description here). Programme modules currently include Medicine in Literature, Disease in History, Madness and Society, Medicine and Modern Society, and Early Modern English Medicine. We also encourage applicants with expertise in other areas to apply. The teaching will include two / three modules (20 student contact hours per module), small-group and one-to-one tutorials, marking essays, examinations and dissertations.
The posts are available from September 2012 and are funded for one year in the first instance.
Post holders must have a PhD in History of Medicine and prior teaching experience. The post of teaching fellow is intended for early careerists who will be expected to apply for post-doctoral funding during the year of appointment. An ability to develop programme content is essential and experience with virtual learning environments such as Moodle would be an advantage.
