Open vacancy: Reviews section editor


Medicine Anthropology Theory is soliciting applications for an editor for the journal’s Reviews section. The new editor will work with authors to develop contributions, as well as with reviewers for their review submissions, and overall contribute to the leadership and direction of the MAT journal.

Interested candidates should be aware of the alternative format of our Reviews Section: rather than reviewing one book, we ask authors to engage with at least three works to write around a specific current issue in medical anthropology and allied fields. Works reviewed can be books but also films, exhibitions, television shows, among other formats. The editor may commission reviews of specific works, help brainstorm additional works for review, or shepherd fully formed proposals of review essays that carefully carve out a space of emerging attention for medical anthropology.

The editorship is an unpaid position. The candidates will have completed their Ph.D. in anthropology or a related field, and they may either have already secured a tenure-track or permanent position at their home institution, or they will not have yet secured a tenure-track or permanent position (should this be the case, they will be designated with additional support from a member of the MAT editorial collective).

The successful candidates will serve in this position for a term of three years. To apply, please send a CV and letter of interest (1-2 pages) to Cristina Moreno Lozano, MAT’s Managing Editor, at by 24 November 2023 (EXTENDED DEADLINE: 1 December). We will be in touch with candidates of interest in early December to schedule an online interview (expected to take place by 15 December).
