Brown University’s Department of Anthropology invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor. We seek a scholar whose research and teaching expertise sits at the intersection of language and society, broadly construed.

Geographic and topical areas of focus are open. A Ph.D. in anthropology or a closely related field is required at or before the time of appointment.   Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, and the names of three references via Interfolio. References will not be contacted until advanced stages of screening. Applications received by November 15 will receive fullest consideration.

The Department is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. Candidates are encouraged to draw attention to these contributions in their application materials.
