*  Brown University,  Associate Professor or Professor
* Marquette University - Arnold L. Mitchem Dissertation Fellowships
* University of Missouri - Columbia - Open Rank, Open Field, Joint
appointment in Women's and Gender Studies
* Arizona State University, Dept of Anthropology (5 positions)
The Department of Anthropology at Arizona State University is transforming
itself into the center and intellectual core of an expanded,
inter-disciplinary, School. As part of this program, it is seeking to make a
series of appointments to take effect August 1, 2005. Newly appointed
scholars will be expected to collaborate with faculty in other Departments
and Schools, the Center for Environmental Studies, and the Consortium for
the Study of Rapidly Urbanizing Regions to develop leading programs in urban
studies, environmental economics, and biocultural aspects of health.
Successful candidates will be involved in designing, obtaining funding for,
and managing large and internationally-recognized research projects and
articulating issues in interdisciplinary terms.

(1) Modern Urban Cultural Dynamics (two positions). The Department invites
applications from outstanding scholars who specialize in the cultural
dynamics of modern urban contexts e.g. ethnic communities, comparative
global cities, informal economies, migration, policy and program
development, rural-urban relations, transnationalism, and/or workplace
environments. We have two positions, one at the Full Professor level and one
at the Associate Professor level.
(2) Archaeology of Ancient Mesoamerican Urbanism. The Department seeks an
archaeologist eligible for appointment at the Associate Professor or Full
Professor level with a focus on urbanized Mesoamerican regions, especially
organizational change in the Mexican highlands.
(3) Formal Modeling. The Department seeks an individual who has demonstrated
an ability to develop formal models of archaeological, historical, or modern
social dynamics. This position will focus on modeling as a tool to develop
scientific insight and social theory, not on modeling reality or decision
support. This position will be a joint appointment with the Department of
Computer Science and Engineering, but it is expected that this individual's
tenure home will be in the School into which the Department of Anthropology
is transforming.
(4) Biological and Socio-Cultural Dimensions of Health and Disease. The
Department of Anthropology will develop a program in the biological and
socio-cultural dimensions of health and disease. The department seeks an
Associate or Full Professor who will be expected to lead the development of
a research and teaching program in anthropological approaches to these
issues. Further hires in this area are expected in FY2006. The successful
candidate will be expected to forge links with the new university
initiatives being developed in community and global health and biomedicine.
