Description:

The Departments of English and Anthropology at the University of

professor position in anthropological linguistics, beginning August
2013. The position requires a PhD in anthropology, English, linguistics,
or a related discipline by 1 July 2013. Academic concentration must be
in anthropological linguistics, linguistic anthropology, or a very closely
allied subfield. We seek someone with a record of ethnographic
fieldwork, broadly defined, who is capable of teaching courses in
linguistics and anthropology at both the undergraduate and graduate
levels. Geographical area of expertise is open, but candidates with a
research agenda involving the circumpolar or northern Pacific Rim
regions, or the desire to develop one, are particularly encouraged to
apply. The ideal candidate's application will demonstrate a record of or
commitment to research involving indigenous peoples. The position is a
tripartite appointment that will involve teaching two courses in the
Department of English and one in the Department of Anthropology
each semester; maintaining an active research program in the field of
specialization; and providing service to the departments, university,
and community. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to
develop new courses for both departments, and candidates are invited
to address this in their cover letter. We seek a candidate dedicated to
equity and diversity of the campus community and to promoting an
environment that increases student knowledge about local, national,
and global communities.
