The Anthropology Department at Hamilton College invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning July 1, 2017. We seek candidates with a specialization in archaeology and general ability to teach biological anthropology. We seek candidates whose research and teaching broadly reflect training in archaeological science – specifically, candidates who specialize in early human adaptations and continental discovery with consideration of human/environment interactions and whose interests complement current faculty interests and course offerings. We expect candidates to be able to offer annually one semester of introduction to archaeology (with 20% biological anthropology), one 200 level biological anthropology course on human evolution, a biennial course on analytical methods in archaeology and other 200-300 level topical courses associated with the candidate’s expertise. In particular, we seek applicants who can demonstrate course contributions to Geoarchaeology and/or Environmental Studies Programs. We expect that the successful applicant will develop an ongoing research program involving undergraduate students. Candidates with ABD will be considered, although candidates with a Ph. D. are preferred. For ABD candidates, the requirements for the Ph.D. should be expected to be completed by July 1, 2017. The teaching load for this position is four courses during the first year and five courses thereafter. Candidates should submit materials via Interfolio at https://apply.interfolio.com/36527. Questions regarding the search may be directed to Nathan Goodale, Search Committee Chair, at email@example.com. The deadline for applications to be considered is October 15, 2016.
We are seeking candidates who can demonstrate their experience in teaching or working with diverse student populations. Your cover letter should address the ways in which you would further the College’s goal of building a diverse educational environment.
