We expect the person who fills this position to have demonstrated an emerging record of research accomplishments. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. We are seeking to appoint a biological anthropologist with research and teaching interests in disease, either infectious or non-communicable, in humans.

They will also demonstrate strong potential for outstanding teaching contributions at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and an ongoing commitment to academic and pedagogical excellence in support of the department’s programs. At the undergraduate level, the appointee will be expected to teach introductory as well as more advanced courses in an area of their expertise. At the graduate level, the appointee will teach courses and supervise students as their contribution to the Master’s and Ph.D. programs in Anthropology. The person who fills this position is expected to contribute to the department’s supportive and collegial working environment, and to make substantive contributions through service to the department, the Faculty of Social Sciences, the University, and/or the broader community.
