We invite applications from candidates with a PhD Degree in Social and Cultural Anthropology / European Ethnology who can demonstrate initial experience of ethnographic field research. The incumbent will be expected to represent the field of "Social and Cultural Anthropology with a Special Focus on Transcultural Processes" in research and teaching, the promotion and support of young scholars and emerging academics, and the development of various forms of knowledge transfer. During the tenure-track phase the position-holder is expected to develop his / her own independent research profile based on conceptually and methodologically broad approaches.

It would be desirable for candidates to have initial experience and / or knowledge in the field of managing diversity, migration and otherness;  the complexity and contingency of cultures and trans-cultural processes; practices relating to interdependencies and hybridisation, decolonisation and postcolonialism; as well as the anthropology and ethnography of globalization, all of which need to be embedded within a sound methodological skills set and candidates’ own empirical research. Further desirable qualities include a willingness to contribute to one or more of the department’s four areas of focus in research and teaching: (1) Transculturation Processes and Diversity,  (2) Media and Visual Anthropology, (3) NatureCultures and (4) Public Anthropology.

Teaching will take place in both German and English. The appointed tenure-track professor will contribute lectures and seminars to the interdisciplinary BA in “Cultural Research” and the MA in “Transcultural Studies”. The teaching load includes introductory courses in cultural theory as well as courses at different levels covering a broad spectrum of modules in anthropology and cultural research (including methods training, specialization seminars and research-based project modules). A readiness to contribute to the German-Turkish Double-Degree Master’s in “Transcultural Communication” is highly desirable.

Further information is available from the Dean, Prof. Dr. Dorle Dracklé (dekaninfb9uni-bremen.de).

Please send applications to the address indicated below by 2 October 2020 quoting the above reference number, or submit them electronically to the Dean of the Department of Cultural Studies (bewerbungen.fb9uni-bremen.de), including the following documents: Curriculum Vitae, list of publications and courses taught, a research profile, copies of Diplomas / Degree certificates.
