The Department of Anthropology at UCL is a research-led department with an international reputation, offering innovative teaching programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. There are over 120 staff in the department, many of whom are academics and researchers conducting fieldwork around the world as well as teaching our many students.
This is a professional services role which will provide valuable support to the research and finance administrative team.
We provide a friendly and supportive work environment in which initiative and good ideas are encouraged, and the opportunity to work with some incredibly interesting colleagues and students whose work around the world makes a real difference. Our staff do everything from working with indigenous communities in the Amazon, astronauts in NASA, to making ethnographic and documentary films and immersive VR content. We are looking for someone who is interested in the world and the people in it, and who wants to work collaboratively with staff and students of all backgrounds to achieve our goals.
