DIVISION OF THE HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES

Assistant Professor of the History of Technology

Applications Due:
December 1, 2020

The Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) invites applications for a tenure-track position in the history of technology, beginning Fall 2021. The appointment will be at the assistant professor level; however, exceptionally well-qualified applicants at higher levels may also be considered. The specific area and period is open, but we would like to find a candidate who is able to handle technical, cultural, and economic aspects of the subject, including connections to the history of science, even if their own concentration leans more to one aspect or the other. We are seeking highly qualified candidates who are committed to a career in research and teaching. The term of an untenured initial appointment is four years and is contingent upon completion of the Ph.D. degree.

Interested candidates should apply electronically. Applications should include a cover letter, research statement, CV, teaching statement, three letters of recommendation, and a writing sample. Applicants should submit a diversity and inclusion statement that discusses past and/or anticipated contributions to improving diversity, equity, and inclusion in the areas of research, teaching, and/or outreach.

The deadline for applications is December 1, 2020.

Questions about the application process may be directed to: historytech-search@caltech.edu.
