CURRENT POSITION AVAILABLE:
The Anthropology Department at the University of Oregon is searching for a socio-cultural anthropologist to fill a one-year visiting assistant professorship to begin September 15, 2014. We seek a recent Ph.D. in medical anthropology with a focus on race and inequality, particularly among African Americans, Latinos/as, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders or other under-represented racial/ethnic groups in the U.S. The position carries a 5-course load. We expect the candidate to teach an introductory medical anthropology course twice in 2014-15, an upper-division social theory course for undergraduates, a 300-level course on a topic of the candidate’s choosing, and another introductory course. We recommend that these courses be taught over two quarters. We have a three-quarter annual calendar and we will give the candidate the option to teach two terms with one term without teaching to do his/her research and writing. We are a three-field anthropology department committed to public anthropology and interdisciplinarity. We are interested in candidates who are creative, theoretically innovative, and are committed to public anthropology.
Interested candidates should send a C.V., a letter describing research and teaching interests, a chapter-length writing sample, sample syllabi, and three letters of recommendation to http://academicjobsonline.org/ajo.
