The University of Vermont, Department of Anthropology seeks a tenure-track Assistant Professor specializing in archaeology. We invite applications from broadly-trained, anthropological archaeologists whose research focuses on human-environment interaction in the past. Ideal candidates should: 1) examine anthropogenic changes to landscapes and/or human responses to environmental change; and 2) do work that is firmly grounded in the application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing methodologies, geoarchaeology, or archaeochemistry. Strong preference will be given to applicants who work in the Americas and actively engage contemporary indigenous or Afro-descendent communities.

The successful candidate will be expected to undertake an active program of field and laboratory research and to obtain extramural funding to support these pursuits. In addition to teaching, faculty members will advise and mentor undergraduates and, whenever practical, involve students in their research. Prospective candidates should submit a letter detailing their areas of expertise and potential research and teaching contributions along with a curriculum vitae and contact information for three professional references. Apply online at www.uvmjobs.com by searching for the position under the department name (Anthropology). The position will remain open until filled but priority will be given to applications submitted by November 1, 2017. The hire must have a Ph.D. in anthropology at the time of initial appointment. The anticipated start date is August, 2018.
