Shandong University, the second oldest and one of the best universities in China, has recently set up a new department of anthropology, now the third in Mainland China. As part of a big recruitment effort, we are looking for 6-8 broadly trained socio-cultural anthropologists who would like to join our new department in the coming one to two years. We are interested in individuals whose regional focus is on East and North Asia or Africa, and who have demonstrated competence in one or more of the following research areas: urban life, education, media, environment, globalization and transnationalism, science and technology studies, museum and material culture, and medical anthropology. The positions can be at either junior or senior levels; they can be either tenure-tracked or based on renewable contracts (usually five years). The successful candidates will be expected to teach three courses (at least one for undergraduates) related to the individual’s specialization(s) per academic year.
Consistent with Shandong University’s mission of engaged scholarship and excellence in both teaching and research, we seek scholars with a record of innovation in research, strength in teaching, and a Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment. Please submit a curriculum vitae, a letter of application, and the contact information of three references to Dr. Zongze Hu (Chair, Search Committee, Department of Anthropology, School of Philosophy and Development, Shandong University, A Zhixin Building, 27 South Shanda Road, Jinan, Shandong Province, China 250100).
