The Department of Anthropology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Archaeology [18522].

We are searching for an anthropologically grounded archaeologist with preferably four-field training and background. Applications from scholars specializing in any periods and geographic areas of the Old World are encouraged, but there is a preference for an individual working in southwest Asia and/or eastern Mediterranean with a theoretical emphasis on complex societies. Potential areas of expertise include archaeobotany, environmental archaeology, geoarchaeology, or GIS.

We seek a dynamic scholar with an active research program, established fieldwork, and a proven record of scholarly achievement with publications and external funding. The successful candidate is also expected to complement and enhance the present departmental strengths. Candidates should be able to demonstrate a record of excellent teaching, as they will be expected to teach introductory and advanced courses to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to offer courses in their area of specialization and to facilitate student access to lab and fieldwork.

This position requires a Ph.D. degree from a regionally accredited college or university and must be in hand by June 1, 2018.
