Postdoctoral Associate

 

The Department of Anthropology at Cornell University invites applications for a three-year research/teaching post-doctoral position in visual anthropology and ethnographic filmmaking at the rank of Post Doctoral Associate. We seek a colleague, first, who brings ethnographic insights as well as visual and anthropological theory to bear on contemporary media landscapes, and second, who is actively involved in media production. We anticipate hiring a scholar who will teach students the practice of ethnographic filmmaking while reflecting on how filmmaking leverages important insights into the ways media are deployed in the contemporary world. We anticipate filling the position with a scholar ready to work collaboratively across departments to enhance teaching and research on media, ethnographic film production, and the socio-cultural dimensions of media production and consumption. The position will require teaching two courses per year at undergraduate and graduate levels contingent on the department’s broader curricular needs. The recipient of the position will also be expected to develop and maintain a vigorous schedule of media research and production. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. at the time of appointment.
