Job Description 

The Department of Sociology, Shiv Nadar University, Delhi NCR, India invites applications for Associate Professor position.

The Department of Sociology at Shiv Nadar University (SNU) has established itself as a leading centre of research and teaching in Sociology and Social Anthropology with a growing community of students and scholars contributing to a dynamic academic program. While current faculty members have varied interests in unfolding contemporary processes – including the study of law, privilege, dispossession, citizenship, religion, poetics, visual and material culture, and ecology in diverse urban and rural contexts – the Department as a whole emphasises a critical empiricism that is central to the fieldwork and ethnographic tradition of sociology and social anthropology. We are also especially committed to exploring the disciplinary processes of ethnographic writing.

We are particularly looking for candidates whose research showcases engagement with any of the following themes:

Life and death
Money and exchange
Practice and ritual
Signs and semiotics

The Associate Professor rank requires at least six years of teaching experience post Ph D and have a track record of high quality research with an ethnographic focus as exemplified by their publications.

Applications must include a Covering Letter, and the following attachments: A CV, listing 3 Referees, a Research Statement  (outlining your past, current and future research work in narrative form), a Teaching Statement (outlining your teaching experience and teaching strategies for both lectures and seminars), and one or two Writing Sample(s) (book chapter or paper already published or under preparation).

Please note that:

[1] incomplete applications and applications sent after the deadline will not be considered for job talks.

[2] research areas mentioned above and ethnographic orientation of research, as exemplified in the writing samples, for both ranks and additionally, teaching experience as required for the rank of Associate Professor, will be considered for shortlisting applications for job talks.

Candidates who had applied earlier need to apply again with latest CV and other materials.

Application deadline is 30th November 2019

Technical and procedural queries may be sent to: mamta.nagar@snu.edu.in

Academic queries may be sent to: urmila.bhirdikar@snu.edu.in
