Social Anthropology at St Andrews is internationally renowned for our innovative teaching and cutting-edge research. Famed for our outstanding results and friendly atmosphere, and set in the ancient and beautiful setting of Scotland's first university, we were ranked first in both the 2014 National Student Survey of Teaching and the 2014 Guardian ranking of UK Universities. We have regional expertise across the world, along with three internationally recognised research centres: the Centre for Amerindian Studies, the Centre for Cosmopolitan Studies and the Centre for Pacific Studies.
Dr Sabine Hyland has been awarded a 3 year Leverhulme Research Project Grant for the project, “Hidden Texts of the Andes: Deciphering the ‘Khipus’ (Cord Writing) of Peru”.
We wish to appoint to a Senior Lectureship or a Readership within the Department of Social Anthropology (School of Philosophy, Social Anthropology and Film), a scholar with an international reputation.
