Georgia Tech, one of the world’s leading technological research universities, is launching a new initiative in archaeology. We look to fill the newly created H. Bruce McEver Chair in Archaeological Science and Technologies. We are seeking an accomplished archaeological researcher, educator, and academic leader who is eager to work collaboratively across Georgia Tech and to engage communities beyond the institute. The appointment will be to the rank of associate or full professor, commensurate with experience and accomplishments. The appointee will reside in the School of History and Sociology within the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, with possible affiliation in engineering and the sciences. The position is expected to begin on 1 August 2024.
A PhD is required. Candidates should possess an outstanding publication record and a strong teaching dossier. The position is open with respect to regional and temporal focus and methodology, although the ideal candidate will have research and teaching interests in archaeology that complement the current emphases of the School of History and Sociology (HSOC). These emphases include urban studies; food, energy, and environment; science, technology, engineering, and society; race, ethnicity, and social justice; museum studies and cultural heritage; among others. The successful candidate will demonstrate commitment to the core missions of HSOC, which include promoting a broader understanding of how racial, gender, and class inequalities intersect, as well as how technology, science, and culture are intertwined. We encourage applications from scholars whose research and teaching focuses on Indigenous or marginalized knowledges and/or incorporates decolonial and postcolonial approaches.
