Ph.D.  Studentship in the History of Biology:

A  studentship is available  in the Centre for the History of Science,
Technology and Medicine at the University of Manchester (UK) for a
three-year project leading to a Ph.D.  The project  will focus upon
the history of cotton research (including entomology, genetics and
plant pathology)  in 20th century Britain.  The student will join a
small group of students who are working with Dr. Jonathan Harwood on
the  transformation of the biological sciences, ca. 1870-1940.

The studentship pays tuition fees and maintenance (initially 6650)
and will be awarded for one year in the first instance (renewable for
a further two).  Starting date is  negotiable.  Candidates should have
a good degree in science, history, or a related subject. Postgraduate
training in history of science and a knowledge of  biology would be an
advantage.  Applicants should  send a letter of application,
curriculum vitae, and the names of two  referees as soon as possible
to  Jonathan Harwood, CHSTM, Maths Tower, University of Manchester,
Manchester M13 9PL, UK.
