The Anthropology Program at Skidmore College invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position in Biological Anthropology at the Assistant Professor level, to begin September 2013. We seek a broadly trained biological anthropologist able to integrate biocultural perspectives in teaching and research. The successful applicant will have topical and geographical interests that complement existing faculty expertise, with preference for a candidate with fieldwork experience among populations with a non-European heritage. The position requires teaching 5 courses per year, including an introductory course on the anthropology of the human past as well as upper-level courses focusing on the candidate’s geographic and topical interests, with a preference for courses on human variation, including race and racism, human evolution, biobases of human behavior, nutritional anthropology, or forensics. Applicants are requested to include in their cover letter information about how their qualifications and experiences will allow them to contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their research, teaching, and/or service.

We are especially interested in candidates from under-represented groups as well as individuals who have experience with diverse populations who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their research, teaching, and/or service. Women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. 

Requirements: PhD at time of appointment, and applicants must demonstrate excellence in teaching and a strong commitment to undergraduate education. We also desire candidates with an interest in contributing to interdisciplinary programs.

Review of applications will begin October 15 and continue until the position is filled. Preliminary interviews will be conducted at the American Anthropological Association 2012 Annual Meeting in San Francisco.
