Job Details

The Department of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington invites applications for a full-time Lecturer position. This is a renewable, non-tenure track position, starting the 2022-23 academic year, with the possibility of promotion to Senior Lecturer based on experience and outstanding performance and service to the department. This new position is part of a UNCW cluster hire initiative in the areas of Africana Studies, Race, Racial Inequality, and Social Justice. The successful candidate will be part of a cohort of scholars to contribute to the interdisciplinary minor in Africana Studies and play an integral role in building and supporting a planned interdisciplinary Bachelor’s degree in Africana Studies.

The Lectureship entails teaching four courses a semester, including our introduction to archaeology, history of anthropological theory capstone, and introductory and upper-level classes in the individual’s area of expertise. The topics of such classes might include the anthropology of race & racism, historical archaeology of Africa and the African diaspora, ethnoarchaeology, bioarchaeology of race, colonial and post-colonial research, and/or racial disparities of health from the perspective of medical anthropology. We look to expand our course offerings into these critically important areas while advancing the strategic priorities of the Anthropology Department, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the university in terms of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The position also involves some service responsibilities.

Ph.D. in Anthropology is required at the time of employment.  Candidates should possess research interest in Africa, African-American communities, or among the African diaspora in the U.S., the Caribbean, or other parts of the Americas.  Preference will be given to anthropological archaeologists; subfield and specialization are open. ABD will be considered; however, applicants who are ABD for the terminal degree at time of application must defend by May 2022. 

The application deadline is January 3, 2022.
