The Social Anthropology Department at the University of Manchester is a research-oriented department delivering excellent teaching to undergraduate and postgraduate students. To further strengthen our research and teaching portfolio, the Department wishes to appoint a suitable candidate to the Max Gluckman Chair. The Chair was previously held by Prof. John Gledhill until his retirement.
We are looking for candidates with outstanding research records, with a particular interest in scholars whose conceptual innovations have made a substantial original contribution to the field of social anthropology. The successful candidate is expected to take a full and leading part in the department, working with colleagues and doctoral candidates to further shape an already excellent department. He or she is also expected to teach on the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
We are not looking for any specific expertise, but rather for an outstanding and exciting candidate with a high level of research success and commitment to furthering Manchester anthropology. Interested candidates are invited to email Soumhya Venkatesan, Head of Department, for informal discussions about suitability and fit. We can also arrange for a ‘no-commitment on either side’ visit to Manchester for interested candidates who meet all the criteria and who wish to apply for the post.
Deadline for applications is the 25th of January 2024. Interviews of short-listed candidates will be held in March/April 2024 and the successful candidate will take up the post in September 2024, although this may be negotiable if necessary.
