Eastern New Mexico University’s Department of Anthropology and Applied Archaeology invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor in North American archaeology to begin in August 2017. We seek a North American prehistoric archaeologist with demonstrated experience in spatial analysis, geoarchaeology, and lithic analysis. The ideal candidate will bring teaching experience and methodological expertise in these areas as well as in their own regional or temporal foci. Skills in quantitative methods and other areas that complement the existing strengths of the department are a plus. Responsibilities will include teaching a range of general undergraduate and graduate courses as well as courses within the new faculty member’s specialty, supervising graduate research and thesis writing, undergraduate advising, curriculum development, and providing service to the University. The successful candidate will have an active research program and will be responsible for directing the archaeological field school on a rotating basis with other faculty. Preference will be given to candidates who have completed their Ph.D. before August 2017.
