The Life of Breath team at the University of Bristol are recruiting a postdoctoral research associate in history of medicine. The post, offered for 2 years, could examine the recent history of COPD, which has not so far been the subject of major historical study. However the PIs are also happy to discuss other ideas for research relevant to the Life of Breath project.
The successful applicant will be mentored by a multidisciplinary team, consisting of Prof Tim Cole (Bristol, history), Prof Gareth Williams (Bristol, medicine and medical history), and Prof Havi Carel (Bristol, project PI).
Applicants should have a PhD in medical history, and research experience in the field. It is not essential that your work is in the specific field of the project, although prior research on breathing and breathlessness would be an advantage. Candidates considering applying for this post are encouraged to contact Professor Havi Carel to discuss their ideas and the post.
The start date for this post is 1 September 2017. The closing date for applications is midnight Wednesday 21 June 2017.
