Closing date: 26 January 2018
We’re recruiting! We are seeking a medical anthropologist to join our Durham team on an 18 month contract.
We are particularly looking for someone who can contribute to our developing research on the relationship between embodiment, dance and mobility with relevance to people living with breathlessness and their carers. However, other research proposals relevant to the project will also be considered. Current work in the Life of Breath programme has demonstrated that embodiment, experience and memory, language and cultural metaphors are mediators with the potential to transform the lives of people with breathlessness.
Applicants must have completed (or submitted) a PhD in medical anthropology and have a strong track record in ethnographic research.
The closing date is 26 January 2018. Interviews are expected to be held on Friday 23 February in Durham. The successful candidate will commence as soon as possible after this.
