The Department of Anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin invites applications for two faculty positions in anthropology and Native American and Indigenous Studies, to start in Fall 2019. One position is designated for an assistant professor, the other is open rank. Applicants with a focus in sociocultural anthropology, or socioculturally-informed applicants from the other subfields of anthropology, will be considered. Applicants from related disciplines are also encouraged to apply. The successful candidates will show evidence of scholarly excellence commensurate with rank, of accomplished teaching, and of active engagement with Native American and/or Indigenous peoples, thought, politics, and cultures.
We conceive of the field of Native American and Indigenous Studies broadly, in terms of both geography and identity, and we are especially interested in work that critically engages these very definitional questions both theoretically and empirically. The new members of our faculty will join a vibrant anthropology department, and will be encouraged to actively participate in the process of building the interdisciplinary Native American and Indigenous Studies Program at the University of Texas at Austin.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in hand by August 20th, 2019 and a reputation of high quality research and scholarly production as well as a demonstrated record of teaching excellence.
To apply, please submit a cover letter detailing research and teaching expertise, a C.V., a recent publication or representative sample of current scholarship, and the names and contact information of three references via https://apply.interfolio.com/55559 by November 15, 2018.
