The School of Science and Humanities (SSH) partner is the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Admission to NU is highly competitive, and the student body is selected from the top high schools throughout the country and region. SSH programs emphasize student-oriented learning, with a student-to-faculty ratio of approximately 15:1. The language of instruction is English.

Job Description

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Nazarbayev University invites applications for an open rank Anthropology positions to begin in August 2022. We seek a highly qualified Anthropologist (Archaeologist, Biological or Cultural Anthropologist) with commitment to the four-field approach. We are particularly interested in candidates with specialization in the following areas: archaeometry, biomolecular anthropology, economy and development, environment and sustainability, heritage studies, and/or the historic period. A focus on the Eurasian region is desirable but not essential. The candidate should be able to demonstrate in their cover letter a willingness to integrate into the existing program at Nazarbayev University and evidence of, or a plan to build, research partnerships outside the university.

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Nazarbayev University also invites applications for three open rank positions (assistant professor/associate professor/professor) in any area of Sociology to begin in Fall 2022.

We are seeking scholars with expertise in quantitative methods for two of these positions, with knowledge of digital research methods desirable but not essential. For all positions a focus on the Eurasian region is also desirable but not essential.
