University of North Carolina Wilmington, Lecturer in the Anthropology/Archaeology of Africa or the African Diaspora (Due: January 3, 2022)[]

To instantiate our values of Access, Equity, and Diversity, the UNCW College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) is embarking on our second year of a cluster hire initiative in the areas of Africana Studies, Race, Racial Inequality, and Social Justice. We seek to build a network of researchers, scholars, and artists that will support the ongoing work in which we are engaged and to set a path forward as we grow these areas of critical study into regional and national strengths. The position of Associate Professor/Professor of Criminology within the Department of Sociology and Criminology is part of this initiative.

The Department of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington invites applications for a full-time Lecturer position. This is a renewable, non-tenure track position, starting the 2022-23 academic year, with the possibility of promotion to Senior Lecturer based on experience and outstanding performance and service to the department.

The Lectureship entails teaching four courses a semester, including our introduction to archaeology, history of anthropological theory capstone, and introductory and upper-level classes in the individual's area of expertise. The topics of such classes might include the anthropology of race & racism, historical archaeology of Africa and the African diaspora, ethnoarchaeology, bioarchaeology of race, colonial and post-colonial research, and/or racial disparities of health from the perspective of medical anthropology. The position also involves some service responsibilities. The application deadline is January 3, 2022.

Minimum Education and Experience Requirements: Ph.D. in Anthropology at the time of employment.  Candidates should possess research interest in Africa, African-America communities, or among the African diaspora in the U.S., the Caribbean, or other parts of the Americas.  ABD will be considered; however, applicants who are ABD for the terminal degree at time of application must defend by May 2022.

Our program includes an array of courses designed to provide students an overview of the discipline, and a thorough grounding in archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology. Because there is a strong cross-cultural and comparative focus in Anthropology, students are encouraged to develop competence in a foreign language and to broaden their cultural horizons by participating in study abroad programs. Through participation in field studies and laboratory research projects of faculty mentors, undergraduate students have opportunities to engage in "hands-on" research; sharpen analytical skills; and to develop competence in the use of research instruments and  information technology that are essential aspects of the undergraduate experience in anthropology.

Special Notes to Applicants: Prior to the official appointment to the university, the candidate(s) selected for hire must be able to demonstrate eligibility to teach assigned courses by successfully meeting the credentialing requirements based on official transcripts and other documentation as required.

How did that search committee manage to get through (conceivably) dozens of applications by Tuesday when the deadline was only on Saturday? Or have we reached the point where we don't bother acting like we aren't just going to hire the internal candidate?

The Department of Anthropology invites applications for a tenure-track position in Indigenous Archaeology. We welcome applications from candidates who pursue innovative approaches that aim to decolonize the field, including (but not limited to) community-engaged archaeological projects, Indigenous epistemologies, decolonizing methodologies, and archaeological theory and ethics. Ideal applicants would be capable of developing graduate and undergraduate courses in the above-mentioned areas of research, in their regional specializations, and possibly others, such as the archaeology of colonialism, critical museology, heritage, repatriation, and specialist methods courses. Geographical specialization is open, but preference will be given to candidates with an area of specialization in North America (including Greenland) who self-identify as First Nations, Métis, Inuit, or Native American.

This position is part of a multi-year interdisciplinary initiative designed to meet the Calls to Action of the Provost’s Task Force on Indigenous Studies and Indigenous Education. This includes the target of hiring at least 35 Indigenous tenure-track or tenured professors by 2032, who will bring lived experience and expertise in Indigenous knowledges, methodologies, histories, traditions, languages, or systems of law and governance. The ideal candidate would complement a department strength in collaborative, community archaeology and would enhance our capacity to mentor and train the next generation of archaeologists. Their research and professional profile would demonstrate the potential to contribute to Indigenous curriculum-building and community research partnerships at McGill.

Has anyone heard anything yet? -- still have not (11/10) x 2 -- still nothing (11/15) x 2 -- still nothing (11/19) x2

So one month later and still nothing. Anyone else heard back? (11/30) nothing x 2 -- (12/3) nothing

I guess no one on this wiki made their list. No search ever takes two months to go through a first round review. (12/9)..

I saw they hired someone to fill this position for 1 year in the spring last year. Not sure what it means for the timeline but it does mean they could have an inside hire for this position.

To the comment above: If we look at the data from past years, we can see that an internal candidate does not always have the advantage (sometimes, in reality, disadvantage), and even when an internal candidate gets a job - it is more about the candidate's academic/teaching capacity, rather than their internal relationships.
