Stanford University

The Department of Anthropology at Stanford University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty appointment in the archaeology of human-environment interactions, with preference for zooarchaeology. The appointment will be made at the Assistant Professor rank. The successful applicant must have a PhD in archaeology and be able to analyze assemblages and teach analytical lab skills. We expect that geographical expertise should extend the areas covered by current faculty. Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of, and applications from, women and members of minority groups, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research and teaching missions. For full consideration, materials must be received by November 15, 2011. The term of appointment would begin September 1, 2012. We strongly urge candidates to apply before November 1, 2011, so they can be screened for possible interviews at the AAA Meetings in Montreal, Quebec, November 16-20, 2011. No virtual applications please. Send vita, letter describing qualifications and interests, one example of written work and the names of three referees to Professor Lynn Meskell, Chair, Archaeology Search Committee, Department of Anthropology, 450 Serra Mall, Building 50, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305-2034.
