The Department of Sociology and Anthropology invites applications for
a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Anthropology (Cultural). We seek
a colleague who will be an exceptional teacher and mentor and a
productive scholar in a liberal arts context. Candidates should have
demonstrated excellence and creativity in undergraduate teaching and
an active research program that can potentially incorporate students.
The department also encourages the incorporation of experiential and
activist learning into teaching.

We are seeking a teacher-scholar who complements and does not overlap
with our current strengths/areas of coverage. We are especially
interested in candidates whose research and teaching is focused on
Latin America, Mexico, the U.S. – Mexico borderlands and/or Latinos in
the U.S. The successful candidate will regularly teach Introduction to
Anthropology, upper-level electives, and will also regularly rotate in
teaching the major core course in ethnographic methods and the senior
capstone seminar.

The position will include the opportunity to contribute to the
school’s interdisciplinary programs – Latin American Studies,
International Studies, Environmental Studies, and Feminist Studies.
Candidates who have a strong commitment to enhancing diversity in
academia are also preferred.

A Ph.D. in Anthropology should be completed by August 2010.
