Good news! My department is releasing an advertisement (it will be in next month’s ASA bulletin, and elsewhere) for a JUNIOR position in Medical Sociology. If you, or someone you know, is a just-starting-out Medical Sociologist, please encourage them to apply. I’m happy to answer questions about the University and Department, although questions about MHS are better directed to Arleen Tuchman (see below). This joins our SENIOR OPEN position advertisement. If you are interested in the latter, please contact me immediately.
