New vacancy: Associate Professorship in the Anthropology of Migration

School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography and the Oxford Department of International Development, in association with Kellogg College


Grade 10a (36S): £48,835 - £65,574 p.a 

Vacancy No. 154234

The School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography (SAME) and the Oxford Department of International Development (ODID), in association with Kellogg College, seek jointly to appoint an inspirational teacher and accomplished research scholar to an Associate Professorship in Migration Studies. Applications are welcomed from outstanding candidates with teaching experience and a strong research background in Migration Studies linked to the Global South, with an ability to develop research partnerships and foster public engagement.

The postholder will primarily provide teaching and supervision for the MSc Migration Studies and for the DPhil in Migration Studies. The post is shared between the two departments that contribute to the Migration Studies programme, with the majority share based in the School of Anthropology. Though the postholder is expected to contribute substantively to Anthropology, to supervise students beyond Migration Studies, and have a research profile that enhances the School of Anthropology, given the interdisciplinary nature of the programme it is not necessary for the postholder to be an anthropologist. There is an expectation that the postholder will contribute option courses that are available to SAME students and Quantitative Methods training. The postholder will also be expected to contribute administratively to the School.

The appointee will be a Governing Body Fellow of Kellogg College. Appointments to Associate Professorships are confirmed as permanent on successful completion of a review during the first 5 years. Any offer made will be subject to pre-employment checks.

The post is offered on a full-time basis, available from Trinity term 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Applications are encouraged from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are underrepresented in academic posts in Oxford.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Tuesday 30th November 2021.

It is expected that interviews will take place in the week commencing 10th January 2022.
