A three-year PhD studentship is available from September 2003 for a project
on any aspect of the biological sciences in the twentieth-century.  The
studentship is funded by the School of Biological Sciences, University of
Manchester, from the Williamson Bequest; however, the student will be based
in the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM).
The student will work primarily with staff from the Centre and there will
be input from School of Biological Sciences staff as appropriate.  The
studentship covers fees, a maintenance grant (£9,000 in 2003-04 and
subsequently linked to Research Council levels), plus research expenses.

If candidates have a subject area in mind, we will consider any research
topic proposed within the broad ambit of twentieth-century biology.  For
candidates who do not have a topic to propose, but are interested in the
studentship, we would welcome applications from those willing to develop
work in one to the following areas:
§ The history of bacteriology/microbiology.
§ Cancer biology.
§ The reorganisation of the Life Sciences since 1960.
§ The decline of Botany
§ The history of applied botany/plant pathology.
Up-to-date details of all CHSTM’s activities are available on our website
www.chstm.man.ac.uk, including information on our PhD programme and current
students’ thesis topics.

Applicants should have a good first degree (upper second or better) and/or
an appropriate Masters degree, with some university-level knowledge of the
biological sciences and training in the history of science, technology and
medicine.  Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a covering letter and
the names of two referees to The Secretary, CHSTM, Mathematics Building,
University of Manchester, Manchester M13 9PL.  Informal inquiries can be
made to either Jonathan Harwood ([log in to unmask]) or Michael
Worboys ([log in to unmask]).
