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
