The institute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology of Leiden University invites applicants for the position of
Assistant Professor in Global Sociology (0.8 - 1.0 FTE)
Vacancy number 22-010 10525
Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology (CADS) at Leiden University studies the everyday practices of individuals, groups, and communities worldwide, to situate them within complex global challenges. Our CADS research program Global Vulnerabilities and Social Resilience focusses on three areas of research: Sustainability, Diversity, and Digitalization. At CADS we propagate a signature methodology consisting of a unique mix of qualitative, quantitative, digital and visual methods grounded in ethnographic fieldwork. We do this research along both disciplinary and interdisciplinary lines, together with our academic and preferred societal partners.
The CADS-teaching program is home to a vibrant student community consisting of over 30 nationalities. Diversity is key to who we are and what we do; in creating an inclusive learning environment where a diversity of experiences, perspectives and positionalities is fully supported, in our own research and in appointing research and teaching staff.
We intend to strengthen our research and education in two of our specializations, diversity and sustainability, and seek to complement our team with an assistant professor in either one or a combination of these fields.
Considering the current composition of our staff, and our commitment to diversity, we expressly encourage people from groups presently underrepresented at our institute to apply.
The Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences conducts high-quality research and offers a broad and disciplinary educational programme, focused on increasing our understanding of current developments in society. The faculty consists of five institutes: Centre for Science and Technology Studies, Cultural Anthropology and Developmental Sociology, Education and Child Studies, Political Science and Psychology. The faculty has approximately 7,000 students and 950 staff members. For more information, please visit the website https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/social-behavioural-sciences.
Information about the Institute for Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology can be found at https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/social-behavioural-sciences/cultural-anthropology-and-development-sociology. Our research program Global vulnerabilities and social resilience addresses ‘Diversity’, ‘Sustainability’ and ‘Digitalization’ as intersecting areas of critical investigation. These three themes articulate the urgent connection between economy, politics and ecology, and run as a red thread through multiple projects in the institute, firmly emplaced in a signature methodology that combines qualitative, quantitative, digital and visual methods. The institute’s scientific staff work on economic and political anthropology, global sociology, the anthropology and sociology of environmental issues, citizenship and diversity, in Asia, Europe and the Middle East, Africa, Oceania and the Americas.
