Job: tenure-track position in the area of Urban Ethnography at Concordia University — LIMITE : 02/11/2018
The Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Concordia University would like to invite applications for a tenure-track position in the area of Urban Ethnography. The position requires a strong research dossier in this area and the ability to teach at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. In an effort to build the department’s profile in experimental methodologies, we seek a researcher with a strong background in ethnographic methods, and an interest in interdisciplinary innovation. While this position is open to all geographical areas, we are particularly interested in the study of cities in Asia, the Middle-East or the Global South. Knowledge of the French language is an asset. A PhD in Anthropology or a related discipline will be required at the time of appointment.
Ours is a dual department encompassing research and teaching in both Sociology and Anthropology at all levels of the university curriculum. It builds on a rich and creative tradition to address pressing contemporary social problems in a variety of cultural contexts relating to the personal, the local, and the global. The diverse variety of student and faculty interests and backgrounds makes working in our department a unique and rewarding experience.
Applications must consist of a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae, copies of recent publications, statement of teaching philosophy/interests, a statement of research achievements, and evidence of teaching effectiveness. Candidates must also arrange to have three letters of reference sent directly to the departmental contact.
