Position – Assistant Professor

The Department of Sociology & Anthropology at Millsaps College invites applications from archaeologists for a position as Assistant Professor of Anthropology. A candidate’s teaching and scholarship should be focused outside the department’s current strength in Maya archaeology. Applicants must be prepared to teach Introduction to Archaeology and Archaeological Method and Theory and be able to offer a range of courses that complement current offerings and contribute to the curriculum in archaeology and anthropology more generally. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute as well to the College’s general education program. The teaching load will be three courses per semester. A PhD in hand will be given preference, but advanced ABDs will be considered. Review of applications will begin on August 15. Application materials, including a letter of interest, statement of teaching philosophy, a research plan, a CV, and references, should be sent to soansearch@millsaps.edu.
