The Department of Anthropology at Brandeis University seeks a sociocultural or linguistic anthropologist with expertise in digital technologies and culture for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position, to begin July 1, 2019. We envision a scholar who works on digital worlds as emergent from and constitutive of specific cultural, economic, political, and historical contexts. Possible specializations might include, but are not limited to, the internet and social media; language and semiosis; science, technology, and society; race/ethnicity, class, and/or LGBTQ+ identities; political and social action; governance and surveillance; infrastructures and labor; subjectivity, embodiment, and knowledge; and intersections of technology and value. Any of these specializations might also draw on innovative uses of digital technologies in research and teaching and might contribute to the department's new laboratory in media and ethnographic arts. Regional specialization is open.

Priority application deadline is October 1, 2018; preliminary interviews will be held by web conference with the aim of bringing final candidates to campus in late November/early December. Applicants should submit a cover letter that discusses current and future research and teaching. The cover letter should also briefly address how the applicant’s experiences, interests, or future goals could promote pluralism and equity in research, teaching, and/or service. In addition, applicants should submit a CV; a writing sample of no more than 40 pages (such as a published article, article manuscript, or dissertation chapter); and the names and contact information of three referees. Candidates should apply online at
