Assistant Professor

Assistant Professor, with a focus on Native American/Indigenous communities in North America
DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY, PULLMAN, WA
Job Posting R-6815

 

Position Summary

The Department of Anthropology at Washington State University seeks to hire a broadly trained scholar who draws on one or more subfields of anthropology and has developed a research focus on Native American and Indigenous communities of western North America (preferred) or other regions of North America. The position is a permanent, full-time, nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor position based on the Pullman, WA, campus. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will begin the appointment on August 16, 2023.

The Department of Anthropology seeks innovative and engaged candidates who work collaboratively with Native American and Indigenous peoples and communities in a way that can contribute substantively to emerging national conversations on Indigenous reconciliation, healing and restorative justice, and who can work collaboratively with faculty and students in anthropology and across the WSU system to advance meaningful partnerships with, respect for, and understandings of Native American and Indigenous communities. In particular, WSU wishes to attract a scholar grounded in Native American perspectives on land, place, heritage, and environment. We expect the scholar to have a research program that emphasizes meaningfully collaborative fieldwork and Indigenous-driven research designs, who implements best practices with respect to such collaborations, and who expands our efforts to develop culturally appropriate protocols and outcomes. This individual should be well placed to contribute to the research and curriculum in anthropology, and to foster conversations about restorative justice and the colonial experience of Indigenous communities, conversations necessary to our educational mission and to facilitate structural change, in the academy and beyond.

Application Process

Formal screening of applications will begin October 24, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled.
