Coastal or Island Archaeologist, University of Oregon

The University of Oregon, Department of Anthropology announces a 1.0 FTE tenure-track position in archaeology at the Assistant or Associate Professor level beginning Fall Term, 2012.  We seek an outstanding, broadly-trained coastal or island archaeologist whose work addresses environmental and cultural change that has relevance for problems facing society today.  An archaeologist working on population migrations or continental or island colonizations would also supplement our regional expertise.  We seek a colleague who will diversify us, complementing not duplicating the existing strengths in the department.  Candidates should also have a strong record of publication and working collaboratively with local communities.  We aim to hire an individual with interdisciplinary interests who will strengthen links among the subfields of anthropology in the department.  The successful candidate is expected to conduct a rigorous, fieldwork and laboratory based, externally-funded research program as well as teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.  A Ph.D. is required by October 15, 2011. Closes October 15.
