ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. The Departments of Geography and Anthropology at the University of Georgia invite applications for a joint-appointment tenure-track assistant professor position for Fall 2014. A Ph.D. in anthropology, geography or other related area is required. We seek an individual engaging in interdisciplinary studies of the longterm relation between human activities and landscapes during the late Quaternary, with a particular strength in one or more of the areas of biogeography, environmental archaeology, geoarchaeology, geomorphology, and/or paleoecology.

 

The individual would be expected to foster a strong orientation to field-based research and an analytical approach to evidence. A commitment to graduate and undergraduate instruction is essential, and the expected teaching load is four courses per year. The successful candidate will have a solid record or potential for publishing and obtaining external funding, and have the ability to teach required and specialty courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Research and teaching should complement and enhance existing strengths in the Departments of Anthropology and Geography, yet also engage students and faculty from other relevant units and leverage existing strengths and resources associated with the University of Georgia.
