The Anthropology Program in the Department of Humans, Environments, and Climate at Hamline University invites applications for a one-year visiting faculty position in biological anthropology to begin fall 2024. Candidates must be able to teach human osteology (with a lab) and introduction to anthropology, as well as a topic in biological anthropology. The ability to teach a course in forensic anthropology is also desirable. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Anthropology or a closely related field. ABD candidates will be considered. Hamline visiting faculty typically teach seven courses or course sections annually.

Our preferred candidate will be able to enhance our departmental strengths in applied anthropology, community-engaged research, and climate studies. We encourage applications from biological anthropologists whose work engages living communities, fieldwork in the global south, ongoing debates about repatriation of human remains, or negotiations of history, ethnicity and race. The successful candidate will demonstrate a strong commitment as a scholar-educator to the liberal arts and interdisciplinary education, and will be able to help our students develop in completing public-facing research, learning to work across diverse communities and cultures, and engaging in knowledge-based advocacy.

Applications received by May 24th will receive full consideration and applications received after that date will be reviewed at the discretion of the search committee. Questions may be addressed to Dr. Brian Hoffman, Department Chair at 651-523-2891 or [email protected]
