Post-Doctoral Fellow, Anthropology

With the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Anthropology Department at Wellesley College seeks applications for a two-year post-doctoral fellow, with an expected start date of July 1, 2016. We are seeking an archaeologist whose work will compliment our existing faculty and enhance the educational experience of our students, with special consideration given to expertise in bioarchaeology or ethnoarchaeology. The fellow will be asked to teach two courses per year, including an introduction to archaeology course. The fellow will also be affiliated with the Newhouse Center for the Humanities at Wellesley College. The successful candidate will demonstrate innovation and excellence in scholarly research as well as a strong commitment to teaching within the Liberal Arts context. All candidates should have Ph.D. by start date of employment.

Applicants must include a letter of application, curriculum vitae, writing sample (dissertation chapter, article), and the contact information for three references. All items must be submitted electronically no later than March 4, 2016. Wellesley College is an AA/EOE and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes applications from women and members of underrepresented groups, as well as others who will bring additional dimensions to the college’s research and teaching missions.
