Tenure-Track Faculty Position Open rank of Assistant Professor Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Medical Anthropology
Faculty of Medicine – Department of Social Studies of Medicine
The Canada Research Chair is also open to internal candidates who already hold a tenure-track or tenured faculty position at McGill University.
The Department of Social Studies of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University, invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor in the field of Medical Anthropology.
We seek colleagues from Anthropology or allied disciplines with publication and teaching records and research interests in one or more of the following areas: the anthropology of (bio) medicine, health care, or public health; epistemic and material cultures of health or medicine; science and technology studies. Geographical areas open.
The Department of Social Studies of Medicine is a multidisciplinary department (anthropology, history, sociology, biomedical ethics). The department sees itself as a bridge between the Faculties of Medicine and of Arts and a space for the analysis of the conceptual, practical and societal dimensions of biomedicine and other contemporary forms of medical thought and practice throughout the world.
If the successful candidate satisfies the specific eligibility conditions of the program, the candidate may be supported by the University for nomination to a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Medical Anthropology which provides protected time for research within a full-time academic appointment.
Tier 2 Chairs are for emerging researchers (individuals who are no more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree). However, career interruptions (e.g. maternity or parental leave, extended sick leave, clinical training, family care, etc.) may be taken into consideration using the Tier 2 justification process to review the candidate’s eligibility. Potential applicants who are more than 10 years from their highest degree with career interruptions may contact the institution to have their eligibility reviewed through the Tier 2 justification process. The eligibility conditions for the CRC chairs are described at http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/program-programme/nomination-mise_en_candidature-eng.aspx#s3.
Teaching responsibilities may include primarily undergraduate and graduate courses in the department most closely related to the candidate’s discipline (cross-listed in Social Studies of Medicine) and some teaching in the Faculty of Medicine.
The candidate is expected to be actively involved in all aspects of McGill’s academic mission (research, teaching, supervision of graduate students and involvement in academic and administrative committees).
Qualifications and Education requirements
Candidates must have a doctorate in Anthropology or an allied discipline. The language of instruction at McGill University is English; competence in French is desirable but not required. Postdoctoral experience and substantial publications are a major asset.
Candidates who do not satisfy the CRC eligibility criteria for a Tier 2 chair are nonetheless invited to apply for the position.
