Position Description

The Department of Anthropology at the University of Chicago invites applications for an open rank position in linguistic anthropology, to begin as early as July 1, 2022.

We welcome applications from linguistic anthropologists whose empirical, field-based research is grounded in social theory and speaks to questions of broad anthropological significance. We are interested in candidates whose scholarship expands linguistic and semiotic approaches to language and communicative practice, with particular interest in linguistic anthropologists whose research intersects with the study of indigeneity, gender and sexuality, or critical informatics and new media. We seek a candidate eager to participate in the Department’s and University’s academic community. The successful candidate will teach in their area of research, contribute to the linguistic anthropology curriculum, and help strengthen ties between the subfield and other disciplines.

Application Instructions

Applicants are expected to have the PhD in hand by the start of appointment. Applications should include: (1) a current curriculum vitae, including the names and contact information of at least three referees; (2) a cover letter that describes your research and teaching profile, as well as your professional plan for the next 3–5 year period; (3) a research statement addressing current research and future plans for research; (4) a teaching statement addressing teaching experience and philosophy; (5) a sample of scholarly writing. Those applying for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor should include one writing sample, such as a dissertation chapter, journal article, or book chapter. Applicants for a tenured position at the rank of Associate or Full Professor should include two writing samples, such as journal articles or book chapters.

Applicants should apply online at the University of Chicago Academic Career Opportunities website at https://apply.interfolio.com/92756

Review of applicants will begin by November 1, 2021; applications will be reviewed until the position is filled or the search has closed.
