Lora Bryning Redford Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Archaeology
University of Puget Sound
January 25, 2018
Contract - Faculty, Non-Tenure Track
The University of Puget Sound invites applications for the Lora Bryning Redford Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Archaeology starting in Fall 2018.
This is a nonrenewable one-year position.
The Redford Fellow will be expected to teach three undergraduate courses over the year: an introduction to archaeology (including archaeological methods) course in the fall and two courses in the spring, chosen in consultation with the faculty mentor. The Fellow will also deliver a public lecture and serve as a resource on campus for those interested in archaeology; this may include advising students, identifying summer excavations or field schools in which to participate, or finding graduate programs that meet the students' interests. The Fellow will be assigned to an appropriate department (e.g. Art and Art History, Classics, History, Religious Studies, Sociology and Anthropology), where faculty will assist with mentoring and professional development.
We invite applications from scholars who have completed a PhD in Archaeology or Anthropology within the last three years. We seek a candidate who has expertise in the archaeology of the Americas or Africa and with interests in such areas as the relationship of archaeology to indigenous peoples, ethnoarchaeology, landscape archaeology, or cultural heritage management. Scholars who are able to make connections across disciplines and demonstrate the impact of archaeological work on a variety of fields in an undergraduate liberal arts setting are especially encouraged to apply.
All offers of employment are contingent on successful completion of a background inquiry.
The University of Puget Sound is an equal opportunity employer.
