Subject: assistant or associate professor position available in Anthropology
at U of Calgary


  I would greatly appreciate it if you could redirect this advertisement to
anyone you know who might be interested.  Although Canadian policy directs
that priority be given to Canadian applicant,  the Department is hoping to
attract applicants of the very highest quality regardless  of nationality.
This position is strategically important to our Department, and it would be
a great personal assistance to myself if you could pass it along to those
who might be interested.

Thank you in advance,

Alan Smart

originals or photocopies of at least two published journal articles or book
chapters that represent your work; (3) copies of student evaluations of any
courses taught; and (4) a cover letter that includes a discussion of the
directions in which you see your career developing over the next decade, a
brief statement of your teaching philosophy, and the names and contact
information for three academic references, should be mailed or couriered to:
Dr Doyle Hatt, Head, Department of Anthropology, University of Calgary, 2500
