We are delighted to invite applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Medical Humanities (Social Sciences) to work with us at the Institute for Medical Humanities at Durham University for a period of 18 months. The post is part of a significant expansion of medical humanities at Durham funded by a major Development Award from the Wellcome Trust. The award supports the Institute’s vision to change the way health research is done through exploring the human experience of health and illness. The Postdoctoral Fellow will contribute to this vision by developing their own independent research and working toward securing external funding to advance their research further within the Institute. The post-holder will be based within the IMH and will also be a member of either the Department of Anthropology or Geography, according to background.

Applications will only be accepted via the online form on the Durham University Vacancies Site (search for post ID 015489).

The deadline for applications is midday on 18 September 2018.
