Job Details

We seek a biological anthropologist with geographic region, theoretical orientation, and specialization open (excluding bioarchaeology, forensic anthropology, and paleoanthropology). Candidates whose scholarship involves collaboration with marginalized or Indigenous communities or research themes relevant to Wyoming will be given special consideration. The candidate should have a demonstrated record of theoretically informed, problem-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research. We are especially interested in candidates who can supplement existing strengths of the department. The successful candidate will be capable of mentoring graduate and undergraduate student research in the candidate’s area of specialization. They will also show evidence of teaching effectiveness and grantsmanship, a record of publication, and a field or lab-based research program that could incorporate student participation. Expected teaching includes upper division courses in biological anthropology as well as introductory courses in biological anthropology at the graduate and undergraduate levels. 



The Department of Anthropology at the University of Wyoming is known throughout the state of Wyoming and the region for its leadership in research and public education about our unique archaeological heritage. The department is achieving national and international recognition for its research programs. In addition to the commitment to Wyoming-based research, Anthropology faculty offer UW international expertise in areas such as Europe, Asia, Africa, Native America and more, constituting a center of multicultural global research at UW.
