Assistant/Associate Professor-Anthropology



Position Category: Faculty - Tenure Track (FT)

Summary:
Utah Valley University Behavioral Science Department seeks an anthropologist for a tenure-track position to join in building a growing anthropology program. Area and theoretical focuses are open. Preference will be given to socio-cultural anthropologists. However, we will consider archeologists, linguistic, and biological anthropologists if their work engages with contemporary theories and approaches of sociocultural anthropology. UVU emphasizes excellence in pedagogy and this position is teaching-heavy. The successful applicant will join an undergraduate program focused on teaching, although research and publication are encouraged. The division of workload responsibilities is as follows: 80% teaching, 10% research, and 10% service.

UVU provides accessible, equitable, and culturally diverse learning experiences and resources for students of all backgrounds, including those historically underrepresented in higher education. We value diverse perspectives and seek to provide an atmosphere of respect, safety, and inclusion in our program. The candidate is expected to demonstrate a commitment to ethical, anti-oppressive practice, teaching excellence, and teaching diverse learners, and modeling inclusive practices. Applicants from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.

To apply, please submit a cover letter stating research interests and experience as well as history as an instructor; a CV; and a 1-2 page statement of effective teaching experience and philosophy. You will also need to provide contact information for three professional references who we will contact if you make it to the later phase of the application process. We will also ask for a writing sample (not necessarily of published work), syllabi, and further evidence of teaching effectiveness at a later phase of the application process. UVU offers an excellent benefits package that includes a generous leave policy, 13 paid holidays, affordable medical and dental insurance options, life and AD&D insurance, tuition waiver (undergraduate resident) for employee and dependents, and substantial employer contribution to a retirement plan.
