full-time tenure-track assistant professor in Cultural Anthropology
beginning Fall 2009. The Department of Culture and Communication is an
interdisciplinary department with research foci in media studies, discourse,
the social impact of new technologies, theory and methodology. An
anthropologist specializing in the intersection of digital subjectivities
and the technological mediation of cultural practices and identity would be
particularly interesting to the department. Geographic area is open but we
would prefer a scholar who has done research outside of the United States.

growing interdisciplinary department are especially welcome.

undergraduates.  Drexel is well-known for its cooperative education program.

and Sciences and comprises faculty in Communication and Linguistics,
Sociology, Anthropology, and Modern Languages.

The Department offers BA degrees in Anthropology and in Sociology, BS
degrees in Criminal Justice and in Urban Environmental Policy, BA and BS
degrees in Communication, with undergraduate specialties in Corporate and
Public Relations, Technical Communication, and Journalism, and an MS degree
in Communication, with concentrations in Public, Technical or Science
Communication. The Department also offers MS degrees in Communication, in
Publication Management, and in Environmental Policy. In addition, the
department is in the final stages of approval for a new interdisciplinary
Doctoral program in Culture and Communication. Teaching responsibilities
include undergraduate courses in Anthropology and perhaps graduate courses
in communication. Ph.D., preferably in Anthropology, must be in hand by the
time of appointment.
