Central European University

The Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology invites applications for a full-time Assistant Professor in Anthropology.

A leading program in Europe, we seek an outstanding candidate who will enhance our existing research strengths, and who can contribute to the department's core teaching in social anthropology.

The successful candidate has a PhD in Anthropology and is currently engaged in critical analyses of global political and economic transformations, with an emphasis on ethnographic methods (in possible combination with historical and/or comparative methods). She or he has an international profile, and a track record in winning or a willingness to solicit grants. A global outlook, English-language publications, together with evidence of participation in major conferences, commitment to critical social science and contribution to broad anthropological debates is also a requirement.

A research university, CEU’s teaching loads reflect this mission and the role provides excellent research opportunities in an international and intellectually stimulating environment. The department is dedicated to interdisciplinary research and is known for its highly motivated and diverse student body and faculty.

We currently have 40 MA students across two different programs, with an almost equal number of PhD candidates. As of September 2019, faculty may also be expected to teach in one of CEU’s newly accredited BA programs in Vienna. The department is accredited in the US.
