Deadline: Review of applications will begin November 16, 2017, and will continue until the position is filled.
The Department of Anthropology of The University of Alabama, in Tuscaloosa, invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor position in medical anthropology beginning Fall 2018. Ph.D. in Anthropology is expected to be in hand at the time of the appointment. We seek a medical anthropologist whose research focuses on health disparities, broadly construed, and whose interests converge with the biocultural focus of the department. Beyond these criteria, topical and geographic specialization are open, although the applicant should complement existing specialties in the department, and be well-versed in both quantitative and qualitative research methods. The successful applicant will have research skills and interests that contribute directly to our undergraduate and graduate programs, with particular reference to our Ph.D. program and its focus on biocultural medical anthropology. The proposed faculty member will have teaching responsibilities that include specific core undergraduate and graduate level classes in cultural, biological, and/or biocultural anthropology, and courses of their own development. Preferred qualifications include a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and student success, as well as working with broadly diverse communities.
