Position – Assistant Professor, The Ohio State University

The Department of Anthropology in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites applications for an archaeologist commencing in Autumn 2023. We seek an anthropological archaeologist whose research explores theoretical and methodological problems and promotes social justice and the diversification of perspectives in the discipline. Our search is open to approaches that emphasize decolonization, feminist theory, queer theory, critical race theory, and/or Indigenous ontologies and complement existing department strengths concerning subsistence, food production, and socio-ecological systems. Geographic area is open. We prefer a candidate with a research program that includes partnership with descendant/local communities and highlights methods that can involve students in fieldwork and research opportunities. The preferred candidate will also build research and teaching links with colleagues in other units such as those in American Indian Studies, African American and African Studies, and Area Studies Centers. Assistant professors in the Department of Anthropology are expected to maintain an active research program that will attract external funding, engage in collaborative and innovative research that advances and diversifies the discipline of archaeology, and produce publications of high quality and broad reach.
