Lecturer In Anthropology Of Sleep/Or Infancy

Durham University - Department of Anthropology

The Department of Anthropology seeks to appoint an outstanding candidate at Lecturer (Assistant Professor) level. We welcome applications from exceptional scholars with research and teaching interests in the anthropology of sleep and/or infancy. A proven track record of research that complements existing Departmental research strengths on the anthropology of parent-infant sleep will be advantageous.

This post offers an exciting opportunity to make a major contribution to the development of the Anthropology Department's research and teaching and the successful candidate will complement one of our existing strengths in the anthropology of sleep and/or infancy. Durham Anthropology prides itself on being able to integrate diverse subfields of Anthropology in teaching and research and preference may be given to candidates who have demonstrated an ability to collaborate across academic boundaries. The Department’s strong commitment to interdisciplinarity extends outside Anthropology to long-standing collaborations with other Departments. The Department of Anthropology is co-located in the Dawson Building with the Department of Archaeology. Academic staff members in the Department of Anthropology have extensive networks of national and international collaborations, including with the National Health Service, the Department for International Development, the United Nations Development Programme and the World Health Organisation.

For this lectureship we are keen to invite applications from exceptionally promising individuals who want to develop their academic career at Durham. Candidates in the early stages of their career should have a completed doctorate and be able to demonstrate the capacity for international-level research achievement. More experienced candidates will be expected to have a more significant publication record.

The successful applicant will, ideally, be in post by 1 August 2017.

We embrace excellence in all its forms and invite all qualified candidates to apply. We particularly welcome applications from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in the University.

Shortlisting is expected to take place in February 2017. Interviews are expected to take place in April 2017.
