Colorado College tenure track position in biological anthropology

by Ed Hagen last modified Aug 31, 2012 02:42 PM expired
The Colorado College Department of Anthropology invites applications for a tenure track position in biological anthropology beginning fall 2013 at the Assistant Professor level. PhD and teaching experience required. Candidates are expected to be active scholars and committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching. Research specialization is open; candidates are encouraged to identify secondary interests in which they would be prepared to offer an undergraduate course and contribute to the college’s Interdisciplinary Programs (e.g., Southwest Studies, Environmental Science, Feminist and Gender Studies, Race and Ethnic Studies; see website). Candidates are encouraged to apply and identify their strengths or experiences in contributing to greater diversity. Candidates would be expected to teach both introductory and advanced courses in biological anthropology, including human evolution, variation, and adaptation and to develop opportunities for undergraduate research.

Colorado College is an undergraduate liberal arts institution with an intensive modular schedule that is uniquely suited to in-depth faculty-student interactions, including research collaborations.  The Colorado College calendar, called the Block Plan, is a unique academic system in which professors teach, and students take, one course at a time. Each block is three and a half weeks long, with an academic year of eight and a half blocks; faculty teach six blocks per year.  The preferred candidate will have broad training in biological anthropology and evidence of a four-field education in anthropology.  Candidates whose work meaningfully integrates aspects from one or more other subfields will be at an advantage.  The successful candidate will be committed to the mission of a liberal arts college, will support and contribute to the goal of achieving greater diversity at Colorado College, and will be able to work effectively with the many constituencies at the college as a contribution to a positive learning and work environment for all members. 

The Colorado College welcomes members of all groups and reaffirms its commitment not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, or disability in its educational programs, activities, and employment practices. The College is committed to increasing the diversity of the college community. Candidates who can contribute to that goal are particularly encouraged to apply. 

Applications must be received by November 15, 2012. Submit letter of application, c.v., four reference letters, unofficial graduate transcript, teaching statement/philosophy, research statement, sample of scholarly publications, course evaluations and sample syllabi with discussion of teaching method and rationale on line at
