The Department of Anthropology seeks to appoint an outstanding Teaching Fellow with expertise in political / economic anthropology to deliver teaching in social anthropology. As a result of significant investment through RCUK and HEFCE funding, the Department now has vibrant research programmes in political anthropology, art and aesthetics, science and technology studies, and environmental anthropology. We welcome applications from exceptional scholars with research and teaching interests that strengthen, complement and synergise with existing interests of members of the Social Anthropology Research Group.

The successful individual will contribute to the Department of Anthropology’s world class teaching in broad-based anthropology. This post offers an exciting opportunity to make a specific contribution to the delivery of the Anthropology Department's teaching and the successful candidate will complement our existing strength in social anthropology. They will join the internationally recognised Social Anthropology Research Group (SARG) within the Department. SARG is home to one of the largest and most diverse collections of social anthropologists in the UK, with strong overlap with the Department’s Anthropology of Health Research Group and Evolutionary Anthropology Research Group. We currently have one of the largest group of South Asian specialists and political anthropologists with a focus on conflict, migration and refugee studies in the UK.
