The School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies at the University of Ottawa invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor.
We are looking for a professor of social and cultural anthropology, specialist in the anthropology of Africa or its diasporas, or Black studies, Afro-descendant, capable of furthering the strengths of our School in the anthropology of contemporary issues.
Candidates must demonstrate expertise in ethnographic methods as well as detailed mastery of current anthropological theories. Experience in developing long-term relationships with the communities in which they conduct research is essential.
The geographic area of specialization sought includes Africa and its diasporas, with a preference for French-speaking regions - which includes the Caribbean as well as active African communities in Canada or elsewhere in the world.
A strong orientation in the fields of food, gender, environment, or migration is an asset - due to our new interdisciplinary and pan-Faculty Major/Minor in African studies.
We are also open to any expertise complementary to that of the School, particularly, but not limited to, those relating to the fields of urbanism, health, Indigenous peoples, science and technology, media, and engaged anthropology, in the broad sense, including social justice, epistemic justice, equity and inclusion.
