Bridge-to-Faculty Postdoctoral Position in Sociocultural Anthropology Heading link

We seek to hire an exceptional emerging scholar with broad and innovative theoretical interests emphasizing the intersections of health, medicine and the environment. Anthropologists who focus on racial disparities in health and access to health, migrant and refugee health, environmental toxicity, or food justice with a medical or environmental focus are particularly welcome.  The preferred area of regional expertise is open.

The Bridge to Faculty Scholars program seeks to advance diversity on the permanent faculty level by encouraging the recruitment, retention, and promotion of outstanding scholars from different backgrounds, with an emphasis on attracting individuals from groups who have been historically underrepresented in our discipline. Bridge to Faculty is designed to recruit scholars with the goal of transitioning them to faculty members after two years.

The successful candidate must have completed their PhD in Anthropology within the past five years – no earlier than August 15, 2018 and no later than August 15, 2023. Postdoctoral research associates are expected to teach one course per year and to maintain an active research program.

This is a full-time position and includes

  • competitive salary
  • benefits package
  • research funds
