The Department of Anthropology at Durham University seeks to appoint up to two talented individuals to the role of Assistant Professor (permanent positions subject to probationary review). We welcome applications from those with research and teaching interests in the broad field of Anthropology of Energy, Environment and Planetary Health, which is a growth area in the Department.

These positions offer exciting opportunities to become part of one of the largest Anthropology Departments in the UK, with a strong international reputation for teaching and research across the full breadth of the discipline. We are proud of our intellectually inclusive environment, fostering the academic freedom and confidence to work at both the core and boundaries of anthropology in exciting and innovative ways. We were the top-ranked integrated Anthropology department in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014); fifth in the UK for overall GPA (Times Higher Education); first equal for world-leading and internationally-excellent Impact and Research Environment, and second equal for world-leading publications. Each year, we welcome over 130 students from all over the world onto our undergraduate programmes, with their flagship residential field course, and 70+ students onto our postgraduate taught and research degrees. We provide a supportive, f! riendly a nd enabling environment with a strong sense of community.

The successful candidate(s) will have an excellent track record in research and teaching, and will be expected to contribute to the development of the Anthropology of Energy, Environment and Planetary health (including climate change and sustainability) within and beyond the Department. Specifically, they will be encouraged and supported to pursue research in this area that is world-leading in terms of originality, significance and rigour, engaging with appropriate funding streams and making a real impact both within the discipline and in the wider world. They will contribute actively to providing high-quality education and curriculum development both within their specialist areas and more widely across the discipline. They will be committed to a Department that prides itself on our collegiate and inclusive values, and will contribute actively to our efforts to decolonise our teaching and research.

Applications are particularly welcome groups that are currently under-represented in academic posts in the University, including from women, black and minority ethnic candidates, and those with a disability. We are committed to equality: if for any reason you have taken a career break or have other circumstances that may have impacted on your research productivity (for example), you may disclose these and they will be taken into account by the selection committee.
