The School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography (SAME), in association with Wolfson College, seek jointly to appoint an inspirational teacher and accomplished research scholar to an Associate Professorship in Visual Anthropology. Applications are welcomed from outstanding candidates with teaching experience, a strong research background in Visual Anthropology with a preference for work on film and/or photography.
We welcome applications from academics who hold a doctorate in anthropology and have the excellent interpersonal skills necessary for teaching high-achieving students; a track record of obtaining research funding, evidence of research accomplishment and potential commensurate with the current stage of your career, and the collaboration and leadership skills necessary to manage excellent research programmes and to attract external funding. The post will be held in conjunction with a Governing Body Fellowship at Wolfson College where an aspiration has been set for the composition of Governing Body that reaches 50% of Fellows who identify as female, and a minimum of 25% black and ethnic minority. The main duties of the post are to carry out research at an international level, to teach, supervise and examine undergraduate and postgraduate students, and to make a contribution to School administration.
The appointee will be a Governing Body Fellow of Wolfson College. Appointments to Associate Professorships are confirmed as permanent on successful completion of a review during the first 5 years. Any offer made will be subject to pre-employment checks.
The post is offered on a full-time basis, available from 1 September 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Applications are encouraged from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are underrepresented in academic posts in Oxford.
The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Friday 26 March 2021.
