Also, include in your materials a statement on diversity, equity, and inclusion which demonstrates personal contributions to foster an environment of equity and inclusion for faculty, staff, and students from diverse backgrounds.

The University of Oregon, situated on the traditional homelands and political territories of the Kalapuya people, is supporting four hires in Native American and Indigenous Studies to begin Fall 2022. One of these positions, a 1.0 FTE tenure-track position in archaeology at the Assistant Professor level, will reside in the Anthropology Department. We seek an anthropological archaeologist with a focus on Western North America and preference for a candidate with a record of effective, culturally competent collaboration with Native American tribal nations and a demonstrated experience or ability and interest in teaching department offerings in cultural resource management. The successful candidate is expected to conduct a rigorous, fieldwork and/or laboratory based, externally-funded research program as well as teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
We particularly invite applications from candidates whose background, teaching, and scholarship demonstrate a focus on diversifying the discipline to include a highly collaborative approach with cultural and tribal communities; who will prepare our students for a culturally-aware approach to their practice of archaeology that can address historical inequities or biases in the discipline; and who have contributed or have a potential to contribute to diversifying our field by training the next generation of diverse-background students. We also welcome applications from scholars who are from populations historically underrepresented in the academy, and/or who have experience working with diverse populations.
