The Department of Anthropology at Brandeis University invites applications for the position of tenure track Assistant Professor in Historical Archaeology, beginning July 1, 2020. We seek an accomplished researcher and teacher to complement and diversify our current regional, methodological, and theoretical strengths and contribute to the department's undergraduate and graduate programs.

This position is subject to budget approval. Candidates should hold a PhD in Anthropology or Archaeology no later than July 1, 2020.

We value and seek candidates with a variety of social identities, including those underrepresented in higher education, who possess skills that spark innovation, and who bring expertise in building, engaging and sustaining a pluralistic, unified, and just campus community. The cover letter should therefore also briefly address how the applicant’s experiences, interests, or future goals could promote pluralism and equity in research, teaching, and/or service. Applicants should also submit a CV; a writing sample of no more than 40 pages (such as a published article, article manuscript, or dissertation chapter); and the names and contact information of three referees.
