Job Details

The Department of Anthropology in the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles invites applications for a position at the rank of Full Professor or Associate Professor with a specialization in medical anthropology, broadly conceived, to start Fall 2023.

Candidates should have a PhD in Anthropology and a stellar record of research, publication, teaching, mentoring, and service according to rank. The successful candidate will play a leading role in our re-designed graduate program in anthropology which includes training in ethnographic methods, anthropological theory, and experimental approaches to problems of health and well-being. We are looking for a colleague with interests across scales, modalities of experience, and/or geographic locations.

Possible areas of interest include, but are not limited to, health in cities and changing environments, planetary concerns, the ethics of care, race and health inequities, activism and community responses, mental health and disability, migration, global health and international aid, war and violence, emerging sciences/technologies, and the engagement of medicine with media and arts. While the topical and geographic area of specialization is open, we are particularly interested in candidates who can bridge to other departments and units on campus. We welcome applications from scholars with a commitment and track record of promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in the realms of research, teaching and/or service. USC, Dornsife College and the Department of Anthropology recognize the intrinsic relationship between diversity and excellence in all our endeavors and embrace these goals in this search.

Candidates should submit a letter of application that covers research, teaching, and mentoring interests, their curriculum vitae, and the names of three referees. In order to be considered for this position, applicants are required to submit an electronic USC application; follow this job link or paste in a browser: .

Applications will be reviewed beginning on December 2, 2022 and will remain open to new applicants until the position has been filled. For further information, please contact Dr. Andrea Ballestero, Search Committee Chair, at
