The teaching load is two courses per semester, and the successful candidate will be expected to advise honors theses. Any appointment with tenure will be contingent upon a positive tenure review.

University of Northern British Columbia: Asst Professor Anthropology Global Indigenous Heritage[]

The Department of Anthropology at the University of Northern British Columbia invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track, Assistant Professor in Social-Cultural Anthropology with a focus on Global Indigenous Cultural Heritage (regional specialization open). By Indigenous we mean the earliest known inhabitants of a territory that underwent colonization, whether recently or in the more distant past. Global Indigenous populations might include: the Sami of Scandinavia and Russia, the foragers and reindeer-herding populations of northern Russia and Eurasia, the Mayan, Quechua or other Indigenous peoples of the Americas, the Maori and other peoples of the Pacific, or populations such as the Ju/’Hoansi of southern Africa. As an institution committed to fostering an inclusive and transformative learning environment, UNBC values high quality and innovation in both teaching and scholarship. We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate who will complement and work well with colleagues both within and beyond the discipline of anthropology. UNBC privileges an interdisciplinary ethos and we seek a candidate with a demonstrated commitment to interdisciplinary research, as well as a willingness and ability to teach in other departments in our Faculty. A collegial and collaborative approach to work in the department, the Faculty of Indigenous Studies, Social Sciences and Humanities, and the University, such as in teaching and service, is essential. The proposed start date is August 1, 2022.

The UNBC Department of Anthropology offers undergraduate degrees and opportunities for graduate teaching and supervision via the Interdisciplinary Studies program. In preparation for careers in both the public and private sectors, we provide a four-field approach to the discipline and offer field schools in both ethnography and archaeology. For more information about the Department of Anthropology, visit our website at https://www2.unbc.ca/anthropology.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach courses such as our first-year disciplinary overview course, an introductory course in socio-cultural anthropology, an anthropological theory course, and a qualitative/applied methods course, as well as courses suited to the research specializations of the successful candidate. Experience in applied anthropology, especially community-based research, is an asset. As anthropology is, in essence, comparative, and given the UNBC anthropology department’s engagement with the Northern British Columbia community, an additional strength of the desired candidate is the willingness to bridge their work being done globally with the challenges faced locally.

Applicants for this position should hold a Ph.D. and present evidence of an established research program with the potential of future publications and research funding. The demonstrated ability to incorporate non-Western methods and ontologies is also welcomed as this approach would complement and extend existing strengths within the Department of Anthropology.  Additionally, the candidate should provide clear evidence of a commitment towards teaching excellence and the capacity for attracting students to the discipline of anthropology.
