The Department of Anthropology and Sociology at Western Carolina University invites applications for a nine-month tenure track Assistant Professor of Anthropology, to begin August 2023. WCU’s four-field undergraduate anthropology program is seeking a forensic anthropologist to support its general anthropology program, in addition to its popular concentration in forensic anthropology. The undergraduate forensic anthropology program at Western Carolina University is one-of-a-kind with an outdoor human decomposition research laboratory, willed-body donation program, and forensic anthropology laboratories.

The successful candidate will teach undergraduate courses in forensic and biological anthropology as well as contribute to the University’s Liberal Studies introductory anthropology course offerings. Preference will be given to applicants who have experience: teaching anthropology, working in the context of human decomposition facilities, and teaching and mentoring undergraduate students. Certification in forensic anthropology by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology is also desired.
