We’re hiring in anthropology at Johns Hopkins University: two open-rank tenure-line positions, on Political & Economic Anthropology, and on Inter-Asian Movements. Applications due on December 12th. Please share widely, thank you.
The Department of Anthropology 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.
The Department of Anthropology at Johns Hopkins University is seeking to fill an open-rank, tenure track or tenured position in Inter-Asian Movements. We are looking for applicants whose work stands outside the dominant framework of nation-states and thinks across regions as the organizing principle for knowledge traditions. We are particularly interested in movements and networks of legal, technological, aesthetic or linguistic forms, multiple domesticities and family formations, and inter-religious circulation of texts, ideas and persons.
Candidates should have a strong publication record of innovative work, a serious commitment to teaching at both graduate and undergraduate levels, and a record of attention to social inequality and/or impactful public scholarship. 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.
