by Ed Hagen last modified Dec 31, 2013 04:07 PM expired
GRINNELL COLLEGE. Two-year leave replacement position in Biological Anthropology or Bio-Archaeology, starting Fall 2014. Assistant Professor (Ph.D.) preferred; Instructor (ABD) possible. Grinnell College is a highly selective undergraduate liberal arts college. The anthropology department has a large number of majors and a four-fields orientation. The College's curriculum is founded on a strong advising system and close student-faculty interaction, with few college-wide requirements beyond the completion of a major. The teaching schedule of five courses over two semesters will include a four-fields introduction to anthropology and mid-level courses in the applicant’s area of specialization. The ability to teach a research methods course in anthropology and/or a college-wide introductory statistics course is highly desirable.

 

In letters of application, candidates should discuss their interest in developing as a teacher and scholar in an undergraduate liberal arts college that emphasizes close student-faculty interaction. Applicants should specifically address their ability to teach a four-fields intro course (required), a methods course (possible), and a statistics course (possible), as well as note what courses in the specialty area could be offered. They should also discuss how they might contribute to a college community that has diversity—of people, personal and educational experiences, and disciplinary perspectives—as one of its core values. To be assured of full consideration, all application materials should be received by February 1, 2014.

Please submit applications online by visiting our application website at https://jobs.grinnell.edu. Candidates will need to upload a letter of application, curriculum vitae, transcripts (copies are acceptable), a course syllabus for a four-fields introduction to anthropology course (Syllabi 1), a syllabus for methods (if applicable; Syllabi 2), descriptions for two or three courses in area of specialty that could be offered, and provide email addresses for three references. Questions about this search should be directed to the search chair, Professor Monty Roper, at [AnthropologySearch2@grinnell.edu] or 641-269-4343.
