University of Lethbridge, Department of Anthropology Tenure Track Position

The Department of Anthropology at the University of Lethbridge invites applications for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor to commence on July 1, 2022, subject to budgetary approval. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in Anthropology or be near completion of a Ph.D. Hiring salary will be in the range of $70,000-$85,000 per year, commensurate with qualifications and experience.

We are seeking to hire a socio-cultural anthropologist with a strong and active record of ethnographic research and plans for its continuation. Given our current strength in research on the Americas, preference will be given to candidates with a geographic focus that extends our global expertise elsewhere. The successful candidate would be expected to teach our general introductory class, contribute to teaching other required courses in our program (such as Theory and/or Methods, and a regional ethnography course), and to develop courses relevant to their interests and expertise that contribute to our existing offerings. Please consult the departmental website (https://www.uleth.ca/artsci/anthropology ) for background on our program and faculty research.

All applications must be submitted online, and should include a letter of application, a curriculum-vitae, a statement of teaching interests and philosophy, outlines of courses previously taught, teaching evaluations, a statement of research interests, and contact information for three references who are academics in the field. References will be contacted directly, with information on how to submit their reference letters. The application submission triggers this request to your references, so please ensure that they are prepared to submit their letters no later than January 7, 2022.

For enquiries about the position, please contact Dr. Jan Newberry, Chair, Department of Anthropology, at jan.newberry@uleth.ca.
 

The deadline for applications will be December 31, 2021, or until a suitable applicant is found.

Company

Anthropologists attempt to understand the complexities of social and cultural life in local and global contexts, past and present. Traditionally, long-term ethnographic and archaeological fieldwork in other societies has been the hallmark of the anthropological study of the human condition, but anthropologists are also cultural critics considering a vast range of issues in their own societies as well. The anthropological perspective makes significant contributions to fields as diverse as health, education, international development, religion, policy, urban studies, indigenous studies, economics and politics.
