Dec 12, 2021 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

The Department of Anthropology in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences at Johns Hopkins University is seeking to fill an open-rank, tenure track or tenured position in the intersections of political and economic anthropology. We are particularly interested in themes relating to gender equity, health inequalities, environmental justice, emergent political forms, and/or alternative economic horizons. Work with thematic links to Black life in the United States would be especially welcome. These might include the production of race (including within anthropology); incarceration, state violence, and other afterlives of slavery; and community mobilizations around land, property, or food. Candidates should have a strong publication record of innovative work, and a serious commitment to teaching at both graduate and undergraduate levels. We also welcome a record of attention to social inequality and/or an impactful, publicly engaged program of research and writing. We anticipate a start-date as early as July 1st, 2022. The Department of Anthropology is committed to seeking a candidate who, through their research, teaching, and service, can contribute to the racial equity, diversity, and inclusion of the academic community.

A Ph.D. is required, but we will accept applications from doctoral students expected to fulfill Ph.D degree requirements by July 1, 2022.

Application Instructions
Applications should include a cover letter; a CV (5 pages maximum); a description of scholarly, teaching, and service activity, with reference to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion (3 pages maximum); and the names of three referees.
