The Department of Anthropology at the University of Massachusetts Boston invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Biocultural Anthropology to begin September 1, 2013. We seek a dedicated teacher and researcher who will contribute to a university-wide interdisciplinary focus on health disparities, both in the US and globally, through a scholarly emphasis on environmental justice concerns. We are looking for an active research program in such specializations as 1) disease ecology and 2) human reproductive health and ecology.

Applicants should be committed to an engaged pedagogy in an urban public university setting and be able to teach a range of courses, from an introductory course in biological anthropology to more advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in their research area. The faculty position will be a key contributor to the development of a new M.A. program in Public Anthropology centering on the environment, health, and cultural heritage.  We would be particularly receptive to candidates with an interest in locally-based collaborative research involving students. Minimum requirements: Ph.D. in Anthropology completed no later than August 1, 2013. To apply please submit electronic copies of your CV with a cover letter describing in detail your research and teaching interests and the names of three referees before December 1, 2012: http://umb.interviewexchange.com/candapply.jsp?JOBID=35173
