- Supporting UCL Anthropology
The Department of Anthropology at UCL is one of the largest departments in the United Kingdom with 29 members of the academic staff, including two joint appointments (with the Institute of Archaeology and the Centre for Behavioral and Social Sciences in Medicine at UCL). In addition there is a number of externally funded research staff in the department at any one time. Our collective academic staff and graduate researchers are widely international in background conducting research across the globe.
The distinctive research aims and profile of the Department reflects its long-standing commitment to a broad-based conception of Anthropology, combining biological, social and material culture perspectives. A substantial proportion of the Department's research activity and outputs are the result of staff collaboration both within and between these groupings, for example pastoralist research and in the anthropology of genomics. All staff are based at 14 Taviton Street unless otherwise stated.
