The University of Chicago Department of Anthropology seeks to add one or more faculty in sociocultural anthropology beginning in the 2012-2013 academic year. Theoretical innovation emerging from rigorous analysis of empirical material is an important consideration. We seek an anthropologist working on political cultures of law and governance, the cultural and knowledge practices of institutions, or the historical anthropology of colonialism and postcoloniality. Other areas of interest include religion, medicine, gender and sexuality, environment, and markets. We particularly invite applications in African and Latin American studies. Multiple hires are possible. Rank is open; PhD should be in hand at the time of application. Applicants must apply online at the University of Chicago’s Academic Jobs website, http://tinyurl.com/6m7wtco. Applications are required to include 1) a current curriculum vitae (including the names and contact information for at least four referees); 2) a cover letter that describes your research, publication, and professional profile; your research and publication plans for the next 3-5 year period; and your plans for teaching at both graduate and undergraduate levels; and 3) two article-length publications. Review of applications will begin on March 1, 2012. However, applications will be considered until the position is filled or the application deadline of June 30, 2012. The University of Chicago is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
