Job posting: Medical Anthropologist TT job opening at Washington State U

Dear fellow Medical Anthropologists, 
Washington State University wants to hire a tenure-track medical anthropologist, perhaps like yourself or someone you know! Rather than calling for a “medical anthropologist” per se, the ad (aiming at maximum breadth) calls for a “cultural anthropologist with a health focus” so, some medical anthropologists may have missed it. (Here, “cultural” aims broadly at ethnographic-based work among the living.) 
The position requires candidates who conduct (a decent portion of) their research in Mexico, Canada or US with people of systemically excluded, underserved, and/or minoritized groups. 
Please forward!
Although the ad says that we will begin reviewing on Nov 7, 2022 (open until filled), we won’t meet to rank until Nov. 15th so it’s not too late! And, if you see this before Dec. 8, we can probably get you into the pool. Feel free to email me (mquinlan@…) with questions (if I can’t answer, I’ll get you to the search committee chair or whoever can answer you).

For more details and to apply:—Department-of-Anthropology_R-7527 .
