Position at Massey University

The School of People, Environment and Planning is seeking to appoint a lecturer/senior lecturer in Social Anthropology to be located on the Albany Campus in Auckland. Social Anthropology is a key social science programme within the School of People, Environment and Planning which has a presence on both the Manawatu and Albany campuses.

The appointee will possess a relevant doctorate and will have relevant research and teaching expertise in Social Anthropology. There is a strong preference for expertise in medical anthropology and the Pacific and/or other emerging areas of anthropological research such as visual/multi-sensory methodologies, ecological or climate studies, post-human/multi-species anthropology.

The appointee will develop and teach (both internally and extramurally) undergraduate and postgraduate students, and provide supervision at Masterate and PhD level. Most teaching will be conducted on the Albany campus, however the School uses video-linked teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level and there will be an expectation that the successful candidate will contribute as appropriate to teaching at a distance using a variety of technologies.

The successful applicant will contribute to the development of the Social Anthropology programme’s undergraduate and postgraduate offerings, to its research and publication profile, and to collegial relations within the programme and the School more broadly. They will also contribute to the strategic development of the College at the Albany campus.

Level of position and salary are commensurate with experience.
