The Department of Anthropology at the University of Chicago invites applications for an open rank position in linguistic anthropology, to begin as early as July 1, 2022.
We welcome applications from
linguistic anthropologists whose empirical, field-based research is grounded in social theory and speaks to questions of broad anthropological significance. We are interested in candidates whose scholarship expands linguistic and semiotic

candidate eager to participate in the Department’s and University’s academic community. The successful candidate will teach in their area of research, contribute to the linguistic anthropology curriculum, and help strengthen ties between
the subfield and other disciplines.
Applicants are expected to have the PhD in hand by the start of appointment. Applications should include:
- a current curriculum vitae, including the names and
contact information of at least three referees;
- a cover letter that describes your research and teaching profile, as well as your professional plan for the next 3–5 year period;
- a research statement addressing current research
and future plans for research; (4) a teaching statement addressing teaching experience and philosophy;
- a sample of scholarly writing.
Those applying for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor should include
one writing sample, such as a dissertation chapter, journal article, or book chapter. Applicants for a tenured position at the rank of Associate or Full Professor should include two writing samples, such as journal articles or book
