DREXEL UNIVERSITY, Department of Culture & Communication anticipates 
hiring a 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. Dynamic scholars with strong research backgrounds who 
wish to work in a growing interdisciplinary department are especially welcome.

Drexel University is a private, urban university with over 11,000 
full-time undergraduates.  Drexel is well-known for its cooperative 
education program.  The Department of Culture and Communication is 
within the College of Arts 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.

Review of applications will begin December 1, 2008 and will continue 
until the position is filled.  Please apply through

application, vita, contact information for three references, and 
statement of research program.  Inquiries about the position should
