Post Doc. Teaching Associate – Anthropology
The Department of Anthropology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville seeks a full-time Post- Doctoral Teaching Associate (9-month appointment, with benefits) in cultural anthropology, to begin January 1, 2020. The position is for one academic year and would be renewable for an additional semester based on satisfactory performance, curricular need and funding availability. The successful candidate will have an active teaching and research agenda that contributes to the department’s Disasters, Displacement and Human Rights (DDHR) undergraduate concentration and graduate certificate program. Ability to teach existing undergraduate and graduate courses in cultural anthropology, and new offerings that contribute to the themes of the DDHR program, is necessary. We are particularly interested in candidates who focus on race/racism, identity, and discrimination in relationship to environmental justice and climate change.
The teaching load will be two courses per semester (50% effort), with the other 50% effort devoted to research and service in support of the DDHR program. The latter may include supervising undergraduate and graduate student participation in ethnographic research; promoting the DDHR program’s profile and visibility through multimedia; organizing special events; and assisting in the development and management of an open access working papers series and/or journal. Commitment to mentoring students for both academic and other professional career trajectories, and active participation in departmental life, are expected. The Knoxville campus of the University of Tennessee is seeking candidates who have the ability to contribute in meaningful ways to the diversity and intercultural goals of the University. The Ph.D. must be in hand at the time of appointment.
