Lecturer in Biological Anthropology

University of Bristol - School of Arts

Work Hours35.0 Hours per Week

The University of Bristol seeks to appoint a lecturer in biological anthropology, with effect from 1 September 2017. Following an internal review of its Department of Archaeology and Anthropology in summer 2015, the University is implementing an ambitious plan to refocus and expand existing activity within a ‘four field’ approach to anthropology. This will consolidate the unique position of the University of Bristol in the UK in offering social anthropology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology and archaeology together under one roof, and provide unprecedented opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and initiatives.

As part of this expansion the Department seeks to appoint a lecturer in biological anthropology, who will contribute to undergraduate and graduate programmes, develop a strong research profile, direct post graduate research, and engage with administrative duties. Research specialty is open, but we prefer candidates with research topics of broad anthropological significance that speak to our themes of globalisation, adversity, and adaptation. Candidates with active field programmes and/or complementary laboratory research are especially encouraged to apply. The successful candidate's research interests will complement existing strengths of the Department, and will fit comfortably among other anthropologists and archaeological scientists in a multidisciplinary environment.
