The University of the South invites applications for a two-year residential postdoctoral fellowship in Historical Archaeology with a focus on the study of the U.S. South to start in August 2019. The position will be affiliated with a newly instituted Southern Studies program, funded by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Teaching responsibilities are two courses per year; additional duties include development and implementation of a local/regional research project that will enhance the new program in Southern studies. Such a project should actively integrate undergraduate students and link the region’s late 18th, 19th, or 20th century history. The position, which carries the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor, may also include leading an archaeological field school. The University has a 13,000 acre land base and is adjacent to thousands of acres of state land.
Applicants must have completed all requirements for the PhD by the time the position begins. Please submit a cover letter outlining research and teaching interests; a C.V.; graduate transcripts (unofficial accepted); and three letters of reference*, at least one of which speaks to teaching experience through the application portal at https://jobs.sewanee.edu/postings/3342. Contact Sarah C. Sherwood at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
*Letters of reference may be submitted directly from the referees or via dossier services to Kristen R. Kleinfeld, Assistant for Finance & Administration, at email@example.com.
