The Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology invites applications for a full-time advanced Assistant or Associate Professor position.
We are looking for a candidate engaged in a critical analysis of global political and economic transformations, with an emphasis on ethnographic, historical and comparative methods, especially in one or more of the following areas: transnational organizations, labor, class, development, and the urban. While we encourage regional and thematic specialization, the ideal candidate will also have a strong commitment to generalization and to contributing to the wider sociological and anthropological debate.
The position covers an area that is central to the department’s research and teaching portfolio, so we especially encourage applicants with a convincing publication record and international recognition. Candidates should have a PhD in sociology or anthropology.
The job provides excellent research opportunities at an intellectually vivid and stimulating environment. The department is dedicated to interdisciplinary research and is known for its highly motivated and diverse students and faculty.
The Department is an integrated department of Sociology and Social Anthropology. It is accredited in the US, has 40 students pursuing an MA degree in two different programs, and an equal number of PhD candidates.
