Job Opportunities

The following is a list of openings for 2017:


Position – Anthropology – University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois

The Department of Anthropology at the University of Chicago invites applications for a faculty position in Native American/indigenous studies. Areas of specialization might include, but are not limited to environmental and resource management studies, finance, gender and sexuality studies, globalization and indigenous-settler colonial relations, law and politics, and museum and visual studies. A goal of the search is to increase faculty diversity, and we therefore welcome applicants who come from historically underrepresented groups.

The successful candidate(s) will be appointed as either an Assistant Professor, or as a Provost Fellow with an initial two-year appointment at the faculty rank of Instructor. This initial period is intended to serve in lieu of a postdoctoral appointment for the same period, during which Provost Fellows will teach one class per year. At the end of the initial term, Provost Fellows will ordinarily be promoted to Assistant Professor.

Appointments may begin as early as July 1, 2018. Candidates are expected to have the PhD in hand, and no more than two years of postdoctoral experience by the time the appointment begins. Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled or the search is closed. Early submission is encouraged. Applications must be submitted through the University of Chicago’s Academic Career Opportunities website, http://tinyurl.com/ybx54sno.

Applications must include: (1) a current curriculum vitae, (2) a cover letter that describes your research, publication, and professional profile; your research and publication plans for the next 3-5 year period; and your plans for teaching at both graduate and undergraduate levels, (3) a one-page précis of your dissertation (dissertation abstract) or most recently published monograph, (4) one sample of scholarly writing (a published article or unpublished paper or chapter), and (5) three letters of reference. Reference letter submission information will be provided during the application process.
