The University of Oregon, Department of Anthropology announces a 1.0 FTE tenure-track position in archaeology at the Assistant Professor level beginning Fall term 2022. We seek an anthropological archaeologist with a focus on Western North America and preference for a candidate with a record of effective, culturally competent collaboration with Native American tribal nations and a demonstrated experience or ability and interest in teaching department offerings in cultural resource management. The successful candidate is expected to conduct a rigorous, fieldwork and/or laboratory based, externally-funded research program as well as teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

We particularly invite applications from candidates whose background, teaching, and scholarship demonstrate a focus on diversifying the discipline to include a highly collaborative approach with cultural and tribal communities; who will prepare our students for a culturally-aware approach to their practice of archaeology that can address historical inequities or biases in the discipline; and who have contributed or have a potential to contribute to diversifying our field by training the next generation of diverse-background students. We also welcome applications from scholars who are from populations historically underrepresented in the academy, and/or who have experience working with diverse populations.

Qualifications: PhD in Anthropology or relevant field, completed no later than September 16, 2021. Candidates should have strong evidence of (or demonstrate potential for) excellence in research and teaching.

Preferred candidates will also have demonstrated experience providing services and managing relationships in contract-based work with contracting agencies, including government, tribal, and private contractors.

Please provide a cover letter describing your current and future research and teaching experience; a CV; and the names and contact information of three references.

Also, include in your materials a statement on diversity, equity, and inclusion which demonstrates personal contributions to foster an environment of equity and inclusion for faculty, staff, and students from diverse backgrounds. As an indication of the importance of the faculty role in creating an equitable and inclusive environment for our students, contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion are considered not only during our faculty recruitment process but are also incorporated into our review process for TTF faculty along with teaching, research and service.

The University of Oregon, situated on the traditional homelands and political territories of the Kalapuya people, is supporting four hires in Native American and Indigenous Studies.
