The Department of Anthropology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Archaeology. We are searching for an anthropologically grounded archaeologist with preferably four-field training and background. Applications from scholars specializing in any periods and geographic areas of the Old World are encouraged, but there is a preference for an individual working in southwest Asia and/or eastern Mediterranean with a theoretical emphasis on complex societies. Potential areas of expertise include archaeobotany, environmental archaeology, geoarchaeology, or GIS. We seek a dynamic scholar with an active research program, established fieldwork, and a proven record of scholarly achievement with publications and external funding. The successful candidate is also expected to complement and enhance the present departmental strengths. Candidates should be able to demonstrate a record of excellent teaching, as they will be expected to teach introductory and advanced courses to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to offer courses in their area of specialization and to facilitate student access to lab and fieldwork.
Applicants must have PhD in hand by June 1, 2018. The Department of Anthropology at UNLV offers BA, MA, and PhD degrees. Although this position will remain open until filled, review of candidates’ materials will begin on November 15th, 2017 and best consideration will be gained for materials submitted prior to that date. Submit a letter of interest, a detailed resume listing qualifications and experience, and the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of at least three professional references who may be contacted.
