Assistant Professor, Linguistic or Sociocultural Anthropologist

We are no longer accepting applications for this recruitment

Description

The University of California San Diego Department of Anthropology http://anthro.ucsd.edu invites applications for a position in linguistic or sociocultural anthropology at the rank of associate or assistant professor with a start date of July 1, 2018. Candidates must have received their PhD in anthropology or a closely related ethnographic field. We strongly prefer that candidates have received their PhD and have at least five years experience teaching or conducting research at the college or university level.

We seek ethnographically grounded and theoretically rigorous scholars whose research examines relations of power. We are particularly interested in a new colleague who focuses on: language use and regimentation; socioeconomic disparity and political ecology; formations of race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, or religion; or colonial/postcolonial relations. Geographic region is open; candidates whose area of expertise is the Middle East, Africa, or their diasporas are especially encouraged to apply. We seek a colleague who will complement and expand our department’s current conceptual, methodological, and regional strengths while communicating across disciplinary and departmental boundaries, including, when pertinent, co-teaching with departmental colleagues.

Applicants should have a robust publication record in established venues, a proven capacity for innovative and effective teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and a demonstrated capability for service in the department, on campus, and to the profession. We particularly welcome candidates whose experience in teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.
