Lecturer in Social Anthropology
A globally outstanding centre of teaching and research excellence, a collegiate community of extraordinary people, a unique and historic setting - Durham is a university like no other.
We believe that inspiring our people to do outstanding things at Durham enables Durham people to do outstanding things in the world.
As part of Durham University, you'll be working with exceptional minds, all with the desire to ask, and answer, the big questions. Access to leading edge facilities and an active contributor to the global research and university community means you'll be part of an international and diverse network of partners spanning the world's best research institutions, organisations and businesses. And all this within the evocative and historic surroundings of the city, county and community that is Durham.
We find it easy to be proud of the extraordinary people we have at Durham. We offer the inspiration, they achieve the outstanding. We invite you to join them.
Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in the University. We are committed to equality: if for any reason you have taken a career break or periods of leave that may have impacted on the volume and recency of research outputs, such as maternity, adoption or parental leave, you may wish to disclose this in your application. The selection committee will recognise that this may have reduced the quantity of your research accordingly.
Durham University's Athena Swan institutional award recognises and celebrates good practice in recruiting and supporting the development of women. We have also signed up to the Race Equality Charter, a national framework for improving the representation, progression and success of minority ethnic staff and students within higher education.
The Department of Anthropology at Durham University seeks to appoint a talented individual to the fixed term role of Lecturer. We welcome applications from those with research and teaching interests in the broad field of Social Anthropology. The successful candidate will be expected to teach a range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules in social anthropology, including those focussed on theory and on methods. They will also be expected to supervise undergraduate and taught Masters' dissertations, and to deliver teaching on core academic skills.
This post offers an exciting opportunity to contribute to the development of excellent research and teaching within an exciting and progressive institution. For more information, please visit our Department pages at https://www.dur.ac.uk/anthropology/
