We are looking to expand the breadth of our exiting teaching and research in Anthropology within the School of Archaeology, Geography and Environmental Science, prior to launching a joint BA in Archaeology and Anthropology in 2020. We are looking to appoint a Social Anthropologist who would make a good intellectual fit within an Archaeology Department; for example, someone specialising in: material culture anthropology; visual and/or museum anthropology; approaches investigating the use of space and/or technology, or the historical ethnographic literature of indigenous communities and/or colonial encounters.


You will have:


    A capacity to deliver effective teaching in social anthropology (at both a general and specialist level)

    Good understanding of social theory and the disciplinary history of anthropology, and an ability to teach the basics of kinship, religion, economic and political anthropology

    A track record of research attainment and related publications

    A specialism in Social Anthropology that would make the post a good intellectual fit within an Archaeology Department.
