University of Evansville - Assistant Professor of Anthropology (3 year visiting position with conversion to tenure track with enrollment)[]

The University of Evansville seeks applications for a non-tenure track, three-year position as Visiting Professor of Anthropology to start August 1, 2023.  The area of specialization is open.  The university’s Department of Archaeology is looking for a generalist anthropologist whose dynamic and amiable personality will make it possible for us build enrollment in our newly created, cross-departmental anthropology major program.  We have been assured that once we reach a certain level of enrollment in the anthropology major, the position will be converted from visiting non-tenure track to assistant tenure-track.

The new hire will teach two courses, Cultural Anthropology and World Prehistory, both designed for a general audience of students fulfilling a General Education requirement and for students fulfilling their anthropology major or minor requirements.  Beyond these two, the new faculty member will teach our existing anthropology courses and develop upper-level courses touching on three of the four fields of anthropology including physical, linguistic, and socio-cultural anthropology and specialized upper-level courses tailored to the new faculty member’s area of specialization.  We are also hoping for a candidate who can forge connections across campus with other departments that could collaborate in the anthropology program.  A normal teaching load includes 3-4 courses per semester with the expectation faculty will participate in department duties such as recruitment and university-wide duties by serving in faculty governance.

The applicant must complete the on-line application at http;//www.evansville.edu/offices/hr/employmentApp.cfm.  Please upload a cover letter, CV, a statement on your teaching philosophy, a statement regarding diversity, equity and inclusion,  and contact information of three references in a single pdf (one complete application package) in the “Upload Resume” section.  Applications will be accepted until January 2, 2023.

Discussion / Rumors / Speculation[]

-- Is there a way to make this more friendly for people looking for positions to apply to? I like how it's easily searchable to get updates once you have applied to a job, but the alphabetical rather than chronological order makes it impossible to see what jobs have been uploaded since I last checked.
