http://anthro.ucsd.edu invites applications for a position in linguistic or
sociocultural anthropology at the rank of associate or assistant professor
with a start date of July 1, 2018. Candidates must have received their PhD
in anthropology or a closely related ethnographic field. We strongly prefer
that candidates have received their PhD and have at least five years
experience teaching or conducting research at the college or university

We seek ethnographically grounded and theoretically rigorous scholars whose

new colleague who focuses on: language use and regimentation; socioeconomic disparity and political ecology; formations of race, ethnicity, sexuality,gender, or religion; or colonial/postcolonial relations. Geographic region is open; candidates whose area of expertise is the Middle East, Africa, or their diasporas are especially encouraged to apply. We seek a colleague who
will complement and expand our department?s current conceptual,
methodological, and regional strengths while communicating across
disciplinary and departmental boundaries, including, when pertinent,
co-teaching with departmental colleagues.

Applicants should have a robust publication record in established venues, a
proven capacity for innovative and effective teaching at the undergraduate
and graduate levels, and a demonstrated capability for service in the
department, on campus, and to the profession. We particularly welcome
candidates whose experience in teaching, research, or community service has
prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.
