We are hiring! If you are a bioarchaeologist (with or without a sideline in forensic anthropology), please consider applying for our tenure-track position. Pensacola has lovely beaches, and the department is full of super friendly archaeologists. Plus, I'm in the process of setting up a light isotope prep lab... so fingers crossed that happens! More details about the job are below.
We seek a broadly-trained biological anthropologist with an active research agenda and commitment to teaching and mentoring undergraduates and graduate students. Preference will be given to applicants with expertise in bioanthropology, bioarchaeology and/or forensic anthropology. Ability to teach a local forensic or bioarchaeology field school is ideal; ability to include students in some form of field or laboratory research is a necessity.
A Ph.D from an accredited institution in anthropology, archaeology, or closely related discipline with a demonstrated record of achievement in teaching, academic research, and service.
Expertise in bioanthropology, bioarchaeology and/or forensic anthropology; experience teaching a range of courses in biological anthropology; ability or potential to secure research funding; ability to publish in high-quality journals.
The successful candidate will teach three courses per semester that complement our existing BA and MA programs in archaeological, biological, and cultural anthropology; will advise and mentor BA and MA students; will serve on and direct master’s thesis committees; and will engage in service and research activities.
This position will benefit from and strengthen existing collaborations with campus organizations such as the Archaeology Institute, the Florida Public Archaeology Network, and the Virtebra 3D lab, as well as external organizations such as local medical examiners’ offices.
ABDs will be considered if the degree will be completed prior to August 2017.
