The successful candidate is expected to work with graduate students in developing research projects and have a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching. Duties will include teaching courses, conducting research, writing for publication, advising students, participating in department governance, and university service.

Applications should consist of a curriculum vitae, a cover letter describing ongoing research and teaching interests, and the names and contact information of three referees. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Anthropology or a cognate discipline, and the degree must be in hand by time of appointment. All application materials should be submitted via Interfolio (https://apply.interfolio.com/96876). Applications received before November 15, 2021 will receive full consideration. Consideration after that date will be at the discretion of the Recruiting Committee. Diversity and Inclusion are core values at Washington University, and the strong candidate will demonstrate the ability to create inclusive classrooms and environments in which a diverse array of students can learn and thrive.
