The Department of Anthropology at UCL is a research-led department with an international reputation, offering innovative teaching programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
About the role
This is a position for a project manager to provide organisational and technical support for the final stages of the collaborative project “Embodied Inequalities of the Anthropocene; building capacity in medical anthropology”, a collaboration between UCL in the UK, CIESAS in Mexico and UFRGS in Brazil.
This post is fixed-term, part-time (0.7 FTE) for 8 months starting on 15th November with a salary £51,474 including London Allowance, pro rata.
We seek candidates with technical expertise and experience of working on multi-media projects. If a suitable candidate has research interests in any of the fields related to the project: Anthropocene health, population and reproductive justice, COVID-19 and the Anthropocene, indigenous ontologies and the Anthropocene, feminist science and technology approaches to the Anthropocene, ecologies of the Anthropocene, there will be the opportunity to incorporate any relevant research outputs into the teaching platform, but this is not an essential requirement of the post.
Applicants should hold a PhD in Social Sciences relevant to the theme of the project the Anthropology of the Anthropocene, and have some experience of working with multi-media inside or outside academia. Successful candidates will be based at UCL in London.
It is desirable that the candidate is competent in either Spanish or Portuguese, two of the project languages and the languages in which some of the materials we work with will be written/spoken.
