Job Opening: 3-year Social Anthropology Lecturer

Department of Theology and Religious Studies at King’s College London

The Department of Theology and Religious Studies (TRS) welcomes applications for fixed-term position as lecturer in Social Anthropology (Academic Education Path, or AEP). This position is to cover for Dr Katherine Swancutt who is currently on Research Leave as Principal Investigator for her European Research Council Funded project ‘Cosmological Visionaries’.  The subject field is open, though we particularly welcome applicants who have interests in the global South, Asian or other non-Western societies, and/or in Black/minority ethnic experience within Europe or North America.  Social Anthropology, and in particular the Anthropology of Religion, is a key and thriving subject in the Theology and Religious Studies Department at King’s. Anthropology is central to both of the undergraduate programmes in the Department – BA in Religion, Politics & Society and BA Religion Philosophy & Ethics – as well as to its postgraduate MA in Religion. You will have the opportunity to use your previous research expertise and expand your teaching skills at both levels.  In addition to teaching in Social Anthropology, you will be able to contribute to dissertation supervision at undergraduate, postgraduate and, potentially, doctoral levels. You will gain experience in being a personal tutor to students and in having an administrative role within the Department. 

This is a fixed-term 36 months full-time appointment.

Closing date: 2 July
