Join our team in Durham – Anthropology post-doc vacancy

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.
