The Wellesley College Department of Anthropology invites applications for a tenure-eligible anthropologist, beginning in the 2024-2025 academic year. Our expectation is that this hire will be a tenure-track Assistant Professor, though applications from more senior candidates are not excluded from consideration. We are seeking a broadly trained anthropologist whose research expertise and teaching interests will complement those already present within our department. Preference is for an anthropologist whose primary research is situated within socio-cultural anthropology or archaeology, with geographic interests in North America, Asia, or Africa. Topical areas of particular interest include Indigenous studies, human-environment interaction, and applied work. The successful candidate will be expected to teach courses related to their research expertise, as well as contribute to the core curriculum of the department (introductory courses, methods, theory). If you have questions about your potential fit for the position prior to applying, please do not hesitate to reach out to Adam Van Arsdale (email@example.com).
Candidates are asked to submit a current C.V., cover letter, and the names and contact information for three references. The cover letter, in addition to outlining your own work, should address your interest in supporting an undergraduate population in teaching and research. Application deadline is October 10, 2023.
All employees hired are strongly encouraged to be up to date with all vaccination and boosters against COVID‐19
