Full Professorships and Professorships with Special Responsibilities in Anthropology

University of Aarhus - School of Culture and Society

The School of Culture and Society, Aarhus University, invites applications for one or two full professorships and a five-year professorship with special responsibilities (abbreviated to MSO professorship in Danish) within the field of anthropology. While the full professorships are permanent positions, the MSO professorship is a five-year position with the possibility of extension for up to three years. On expiry of this period, the MSO professor will be offered employment and remuneration as an associate professor.

The positions are available from 1 September 2018, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The positions are being offered within the broad field of social/cultural anthropology, as we are seeking to attract top-level applicants who can contribute to the further development of the thriving research and educational environments at the university’s Department of Anthropology by either strengthening the department’s existing research foci (see below) or expanding its profile in new directions.

Place of employment: Moesgaard, Moesgård allé, 8270 Højbjerg, Denmark.

Applicants must be able to document extensive research experience and leadership within the field of social/cultural anthropology. There are no set regional or thematic limitations for either position. We are seeking applicants with excellent and well-documented core anthropological research credentials, including experience and expertise gained through long-term ethnographic fieldwork, an outstanding publication record and a documented ability to attract external funding and nurture international collaboration.
