The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism worked with the Vietnam National Museum of History, the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum, the Vietnam National Puppetry Theatre, the Centre for Research, Preservation and Promotion of Vietnamese Traditional Culture, and travel firms to build these tours.

Visitors had a chance to explore the Vietnam National Museum of History, visit Hanoi’s Old Quarter, an old house on Ma May, Bach Ma Temple and try some street food on January 18.

Deadline for applications 16 March 2018. Details in the link below.

The Davidson College Department of Anthropology seeks applications for a two-year visiting position in East or Southeast Asian cultural anthropology with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2018. Area of expertise is open, but should complement existing departmental strengths and contribute to our four-field approach to the discipline.

Teaching load is five courses per year. In addition to courses in their area of expertise, the successful candidate will share periodic responsibility for required intro, theory, and methods courses (along with two other cultural anthropologists). Davidson emphasizes interdisciplinarity, so an ability to offer courses contributing to other majors, such as Environmental Studies, East Asian Studies, Digital Studies, etc. is a plus. In addition to teaching, the faculty member will advise and mentor undergraduates and may direct independent studies and involve students in their research.

Applications are only accepted online at http://employment.davidson.edu (search for the position under Faculty, then Anthropology). Please submit all application materials by March 16, 2018. Candidates should initially submit a cover letter (including a list of courses the applicant would be willing to offer), CV, a teaching philosophy statement, a description of current and past research, and a diversity/ inclusivity statement. The diversity/inclusivity statement, no longer than a single page, should describe how your teaching, research, and/or service might contribute to Davidson’s institutional commitment to diversity and inclusion. We also request the names and contact information for three references who will be contacted directly for selected candidates.

Davidson faculty enjoy a low faculty-student ratio, emphasis on and appreciation of excellence in teaching, and a collegial, respectful atmosphere that honors academic achievement and integrity. Davidson is strongly committed to achieving excellence and cultural diversity, and welcomes applications from women, members of minority groups, and others who would bring additional dimensions to the college’s mission.

Successful candidates should have demonstrated excellence in teaching undergraduates, an ongoing publication record, and continued research activity. The Ph.D. must be in hand at the time of appointment.
