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 2024-25 academic year, with the opportunity of promotion to Senior Lecturer based on outstanding performance and service to the department. The initial renewable contract is for one year. After a Lecturer has been reappointed twice, they may be promoted to Senior Lecturer and given a three-year contract.

The Lectureship entails teaching four courses a semester, including our introduction to archaeology, history of anthropological theory, 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, historical archaeology of Indigenous populations, ethnoarchaeology, bioarchaeology, 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 Humanities, Social Sciences and the Arts, and the university in terms of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The position also involves some service responsibilities.
