We invite applications for an Associate Professor in Ethnographic Film Practice and Visual Anthropology. The successful candidates will be expected to carry out high-quality research, teaching and administration within the department. This includes contributing to core teaching for masters and undergraduate programmes as well as developing advanced optional modules in the appointee’s area of specialisation.

We seek applicants with research expertise with extensive practise based research and teaching expertise within Ethnographic and Anthropological Film. Candidates with film practice and theory interests that complement the interests of existing staff within the Department of Anthropology are particularly sought.

The position is available from summer 2019.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in documentary, ethnographic and anthropological film (moving image) practice and history, and the teaching of such, and will be able to contribute to teaching in the MA Ethnographic and Documentary Film and the MFA in Creative Documentary but also to courses in visual anthropology.
