Extensive ethnographic fieldwork experience working directly with Latino immigrant farmworkers is required. Professional policy experience serving on the National Advisory Council on Migrant Health is preferred. We are particularly interested in scholars who will complement departmental strengths in medical anthropology and the bioarchaeology of human health and health disparities, expand department offerings relevant to the Department's Minor in Medical Anthropology, as well as build on universitywide strengths in global health and the College's Minor in Medical Humanities. Applicants must have and maintain an active program of research and demonstrate a record of seeking and securing extramural funding.
