The Department of Science and Technology Studies, University College
London, seeks undergraduate teaching replacement in the history,
philosophy and social studies of the life sciences during staff leave.
Openings include two courses September to December 2001 and two courses
January to March 2002. All courses include examinations in May 2002.
Renewal or additional courses are possible for September to December
2002. Compensation includes GBP2,200-2,700 per course (plus 12% NI) and
use of university facilities as a visiting fellow. Application can be
made for any combination of courses.
Courses may follow titles currently on offer (HPSCB115, HPSCC216,
HPSCC217, HPSCC320, HPSCC329), using new or existing content.
Alternative advanced courses may highlight other themes within the life
sciences, provided they complement the department's existing curriculum.
For this opportunity, 'biology' is broadly construed to include any
discipline within the life, social, and human sciences in any geographic
range, preferably c1700 to the present. It excludes medical sciences as
covered by historians in UCL's Department of Anatomy and Developmental
Prospective applicants should submit a curriculum vitae (including
teaching experience), contact details for two references, and a short
prospectus for courses proposed (aims, objectives, and description of
content) no later than 15 June 2001. After initial screening, high
ranking candidates will be asked to provide full course syllabi,
references will be contacted, and candidates will be interviewed either
in person or by telephone. Candidates proposing to replace at least
HPSCB115 will be preferred. Candidates must be legally employable in the
UK; UCL will not sponsor a work permit for this replacement. PhD is
preferred but not required.
Materials should be submitted on paper to Dr Joe Cain, Department of
Science and Technology Studies, University College London, Gower Street,
London, WC1E 6BT. For additional information, visit

roughly seventy students currently enrolled.
