Academic Posting in the Faculty of Social Sciences

Department of Anthropology

Archaeologist, Assistant Professor Tenure-Track

The Department of Anthropology seeks a tenure-track assistant professor in archaeology. The successful candidate will be an anthropological archaeologist engaged in a theory-based research program. Topical, methodological and geographic specializations are open, but should complement current faculty strengths. Proficiency in one or more science-based research methods is an asset, and we are particularly interested in candidates with research and teaching skills in GIS-based applications.

The successful candidate must be prepared to undertake graduate supervision within a strong and growing PhD program. In addition to their own geographic areas of interest, candidates should have the capacity to supervise graduate students engaged in topically or methodologically related research based in Ontario. The successful candidate should also be open to collaborative research and graduate supervision opportunities across anthropology and with other disciplines. Candidates will have completed a Ph.D. and will have a strong research record and a demonstrated record of excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Applications should include a curriculum vita, the names and addresses (including email) of three referees, a statement of research interests and plans, and a statement of teaching philosophy and should be sent in electronic format.
