Lecturer in the Anthropology of Sleep and/or Infancy

Open to the world…

Durham University is one of the world’s top research intensive universities with strengths across the Arts and Humanities, Sciences and Social Sciences. The University sits in a beautiful, historic city where it shares ownership of a World Heritage Site with Durham Cathedral, one of the greatest Romanesque buildings in Western Europe. A collegiate University, Durham recruits outstanding students from across the world and offers an unmatched wider student experience.

Join us as Lecturer in the Anthropology of Sleep and/or Infancy, and you will discover a wonderful intellectual and social environment in which to make a career. Here, you will explore the frontiers of knowledge.

Joining one of the UK’s very best Anthropology departments, you will enjoy extensive scope to further your research and teaching interests - whether in the field of anthropology of sleep, infancy or both. We are committed to collaboration across academic boundaries, and you will benefit from our extensive national and international networks. As a member of the internationally recognised Anthropology of Health Research group, you will make a major contribution to the development of our teaching and research. We have exciting plans to significantly grow our range of seminars, global conferences and workshops, so the scope for you to make an impact has never been better.

To join us, you will need a doctorate in Anthropology or a related discipline, with proven experience of conducting research into sleep or infancy. Your research track record demonstrates potential either to shape the disciplinary agenda or to create public benefit in terms of individual, societal or economic wellbeing. Crucially, you will bring to the role great enthusiasm and experience of lecturing and small group teaching at a university level, with evidence of excellent evaluations.

If you are an outstanding, enterprising, intellectually curious academic with ambition and a strong sense of collegiality, please do consider applying to Durham University.
