Engaged Anthropologist

The Department of Anthropology at San Diego State University is seeking an outstanding teacher-scholar to join our faculty at the level of Associate or Full Professor with tenure beginning Fall 2023. We seek someone with a strong commitment to academic and research excellence to help develop a Joint Doctorate Program (JDP) with a University of California Anthropology partner in public facing/engaged anthropology. Candidates must have a proven record of excellent publication and external funding support. Subfield and geographic region of focus are open but we seek a colleague who can articulate with departmental strengths in health, migration, the environment, technology and society, heritage and memory, and/or social justice. We seek a scholar who brings creative/innovative methodologies, pursues engaged research programs, and is attentive to institutional and political asymmetries of power. The successful candidate will possess an outstanding record of research, teaching, and leadership along with a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Ideally, the candidate will come with doctorate-level advising and leadership experience and a willingness to play a central role in the JDP. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in anthropology. As the JDP is developed, the successful candidate will teach low-to-mid-level subfield-specific courses for the curriculum, undergraduate and graduate courses in the candidate’s research specialties, and advise undergraduate and master’s level students. Applicants should have demonstrated experience in and/or commitment to teaching and working effectively with students from diverse backgrounds and members of underrepresented groups.

Interested candidates should apply via Interfolio: https://apply.interfolio.com/116981. Review of applications will begin on January 16, 2023, and the position will remain open until filled.
