Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology 

The Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology of Central European
University Budapest seeks candidates for a full-time Assistant Professor.
The candidates are expected to be dynamic scholars with teaching experience
and a promising publication record in Social and/or Cultural Anthropology.
They should have thought critically and reflexively about the current state
of Anthropology in relation to other disciplines, and about the implications
of current processes of social change - in particular the relationship
between globalization and the state - for the future development of teaching
and research in the field. We are especially interested in candidates with a
research focus on the study of religion, religious movements, media,
postcolonial, transnational or urban processes and their combinations. We
particularly welcome applications from scholars working on regions outside
of Europe in a broad comparative perspective. 

Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in Anthropology.
Starting date is no later than October 2005. 

CEU is a private American, English-speaking, graduate research-intensive
university located in Budapest, Hungary. The teaching staff consists of
