Job Opportunity at the University of Washington!

The Anthropology Department at the University of Washington is conducting a search for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Archaeology with a focus on climate change and community resilience. A complete position announcement and link for submission of application materials are available at: [].

Priority deadline for review of applications is December 1, 2022 at 5 pm PST. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.

The department of anthropology is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. In the Archaeology program, this commitment has led us to develop a unique undergraduate track in Indigenous Archaeology and to expand our long-standing investments in diversity and decolonial archaeology including community archaeology and community-based participatory research practices. Several members of the faculty have pursued decolonial and community-engaged research throughout their careers, and many of our students are deeply committed to expanding these approaches in their own work. Even so, we acknowledge the need for ongoing work to broaden and deepen these engagements, work that we are committed to advancing in the years to come.

The University of Washington would appreciate your help in sharing this announcement with any graduate students, Early Career Researchers, and others in your professional network who might be interested. We are especially seeking candidates who complement our faculty’s existing strengths by engaging in new methods, skills, and theoretical directions in our undergraduate tracks in Indigenous Archaeology and Archaeological Science, our Masters program in archaeological heritage, and our PhD program.

Salary info for all UW faculty are openly available at []. Tenure track faculty in Anthropology have an annual service period of nine months (September 16-June 15) and typically teach a total of 18 credits during the Academic Year.
