The Department of Anthropology at Rice University, located in Houston, Texas, invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor to begin July 1, 2020. Assistant professors are expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses and perform research in their specialized area.

In addition, they will excel in teaching undergraduate and graduate students. We encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research interests enhance the department’s existing strengths in the archaeology of Africa and the African Diaspora, and who have research expertise in geoarchaeology, zooarchaeology, and/or remoting sensing/GIS and are willing to develop those specializations at Rice. Candidates should be able to contribute to the Museums and Cultural Heritage program at Rice.
Candidates must currently have a Ph.D. or complete the Ph.D. by July 1, 2020.
