I'm writing to draw your attention to a job announcement that will be 
advertised soon. It's for a brand new, tenure-track position in the history 
of science and/or technology in the modern age. Geographical focus is wide 
open, as is research specialization.

We're looking for someone with great scholarly potential as well as the 
ability to teach undergraduates well at both the introductory and upper 
levels. OU offers the MA in all areas of history and the Ph.D. in 
twentieth-century history, so this person can expect to work with graduate 
students. Our faculty members teach four courses a year and all are active 
in their fields of research and publication.

I would appreciate your help in publicizing this position as widely as 
possible and encouraging suitable candidates to apply. The deadline is 
November 7. Below I've pasted a link to the official posting as well as the 
description that will appear in the Chronicle and elsewhere. If I can tell 
you anything else about the position or history at Ohio University, please 
let me know. Thanks in advance.


The Department of History at Ohio University invites applications for a new 
position in the history of science and/or technology in the modern age. 
Research interests should reflect the social, economic, ecological, or 
political context of scientific/technological development. The chosen 
candidate will offer courses in both the history of science and technology 
and in a traditional geographically-defined field. An ability to teach 
classes with a global and comparative perspective is preferred, but 
candidates specializing in all geographical fields are encouraged to apply. 
The successful candidate will develop introductory and upper-level survey 
courses within his or her discipline, and participate in interdisciplinary 
courses at the introductory or advanced level in collaboration with 
colleagues from other disciplines, including the natural sciences.
