Lecturer in Anthropology (Workday position R0008120)

The Department of Anthropology at Brandeis University seeks to hire a Lecturer to teach ANTH 144a Anthropology of Gender in fall 2023. The course is described in the Brandeis Bulletin as follows:

Explores gender, sexuality and cultural systems from a comparative perspective. Topics may include rituals of masculinity and femininity, the vexing question of the universality of women’s subordination, culturally-specific classifications of sexual orientation and gender identity, transnational feminisms, sex work, migrant labor, reproductive rights, and much more.

This course is designed primarily for undergraduate students and would be “writing intensive,” meaning that some attention to writing is included as part of the curriculum. A graduate student TA to assist with grading and course logistics will be available (pending enrollment of at least 25 students, and we could plan to cap the course at about 25). The course could be offered either three days a week in 50-minute blocks (M W Th at 10:10, 12:20 or 1:25), or two days a week in 80-minute blocks (M W at 5:40, or T TH at 5:30). The Brandeis Fall 2023 Academic Calendar can be found here:

Candidates must have strong training in sociocultural anthropology (ABD or PhD status) and previous teaching experience.

How to Apply:

Applications will be reviewed as they arrive, with consideration beginning on April 10th.
