Antioch College invites applications for a tenure-track position in cultural anthropology to begin Fall 2014. We seek a colleague who is collaborative but also able to take a leadership role in developing the anthropology program and rebuilding the College. We seek candidates who have demonstrated excellence in teaching and a strong commitment to undergraduate liberal arts education.
Cultural anthropology is a concentration in the Social Sciences Division, along with psychology and political economy. Areas of expertise are open but the successful candidate should be broadly trained in cultural anthropology and, preferably, have an interdisciplinary background. The successful candidate is expected to teach foundation courses in cultural anthropology, intermediate level courses on more specialized topics and interdisciplinary colloquies in collaboration with other faculty in related fields. In addition to offering courses within the discipline, the candidate is expected to contribute to organizing interdisciplinary Global Seminars on the themes of water, food, energy, health, governance, and education. The successful candidate will also participate in program development, provide academic advising, guide students in developing their individualized majors, and oversee Senior Projects/Theses in anthropology.
A PhD in anthropology or related field is required by the time of appointment. Rank and tenure status are open depending on qualifications, and salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, three letters of recommendation, and unofficial transcripts electronically as PDF attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Electronic submission of all materials is strongly preferred, as a single PDF if possible. Course evaluations and official transcripts will be required of finalists. If necessary, hard copies may be mailed to Anthropology Search c/o Nancy Wilburn, Antioch College, One Morgan Place, Yellow Springs, OH 45387. Deadline to receive materials is December 2, 2013.
