The University of Notre Dame, Department of Anthropology, invites applications for a tenure track assistant professor position in archaeology.  

The successful candidate will be foremost an inspirational teacher, role model, and mentor to graduate and undergraduate students with varying academic and non-academic career goals.  The successful candidate must express their dedication to the four-field approach to high quality undergraduate and graduate education. 

We are searching for an archaeologically grounded and anthropologically informed scholar with four-field training, who is an engaging teacher with an active program of field research.  The research interests of the successful candidate should, complement or extend our current existing departmental faculty expertise related to non-state sedentary societies or the people on the margins of states.

The thematic focus, geographical and temporal interests, and methodological skills are open, with the successful candidate making a strong case for how their academic portfolio and research agenda complement and extend existing research and teaching agendas.  Excellent teaching skills, a demonstrated path toward an outstanding research record, and strong scholarly promise are expected. The Department of Anthropology is dedicated to dynamic four field graduate and undergraduate teaching that seeks creative collaboration across disciplinary lines, engaged scholarship, congenial relations, and the ability to incorporate students into active learning, research and fieldwork.
