The Department of Anthropology at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs seeks candidates for a full-time instructor appointment in cultural and linguistic anthropology, to begin in Fall 2017.
We seek a dynamic teacher with the versatility to cover introductory courses in cultural and linguistic anthropology; a field-based ethnographic methods course; and upper-division electives in linguistic anthropology related to the candidate’s areas of interest and specialization. Areas of specialization are open. Teaching load is typically 12 credit-hours per semester, although if an instructor chooses to deliver more intensive field-based methods courses the distribution of credit hours may be renegotiated.
In the letter of application, candidates should address teaching philosophy; evidence of ability to work well with people, including those of diverse backgrounds; experience with and commitment to intellectual diversity; qualifications for teaching the courses mentioned; and research program, if any. We strongly prefer a candidate who can demonstrate the ability to integrate practical instruction on basic anthropological approaches to research, writing, and ethics into introductory courses in ways that will support students at later stages of their degree programs.
The successful candidate will have the Ph.D. in hand by August 2017.
Applicants must submit:
- Letter of application that specifically addresses the job requirements and qualifications
- Current curriculum vitae
- Unofficial transcripts
- Contact information for three references
