The University of Miami (UM) Department of Anthropology seeks a language researcher, whose work relies on the tools of data science and who is eager to collaborate across (sub)fields, for a faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank. We desire an active researcher to join a department whose faculty conduct research in archeology, linguistics, physical anthropology, primatology, and cultural anthropology. The successful applicant will have a strong publication record on topics potentially including language evolution, linguistic typology, cognitive linguistics, and/or the intersection of language and culture. Any related areas of specialization will be considered, however, if the applicant incorporates quantitative data analysis to illuminate anthropological concerns, broadly construed. The ideal candidate would have an established record of original research, funding, teaching, and publication, and should be able to express how undergraduate and graduate students would be engaged in similar efforts going forward.

A Ph.D. in Anthropology or a related field must be in-hand by the position start date, August 15, 2022. While a degree in the specific field of Anthropology is preferred, it is not required, as long as the candidate has a Ph.D. in-hand and his/her research focuses on issues of anthropological import. This is a tenure-track position with a teaching assignment of two courses per semester. Review of applications will commence immediately and will continue until October 31, 2021. Applications shall be submitted via the UM Faculty Careers website at:

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a letter of interest, a brief document describing your plans for future research, a document describing your teaching philosophy, a document explaining your commitment to diversity, and the names of at least three references. For any questions regarding this position, please contact Caleb Everett at [email protected].
