The teaching load is three courses per semester. Teaching responsibilities include upper-division and graduate courses in the History of Medicine, as well as the World History survey. We are especially interested in candidates who can develop topical courses concerning earlier periods in the history of medicine (prior to the 17th century). Online teaching experience is a plus. Educational Requirements for the Position
We strongly prefer candidates with a Ph.D. in History, but candidates holding the doctoral degree in a related discipline may be considered. The Ph.D. is required prior to appointment.
