Department of Anthropology

For nearly a century the Department of Anthropology has prepared students in sociocultural anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology, and linguistics. With 17 faculty members and about 60 graduate students, the department teaches over 2,200 undergraduate students each year.

The faculty offer a rich array of courses, teaching across geographical, chronological, and analytical frameworks. A lively community of scholars, faculty and students alike are engaged with research and teaching, connecting with colleagues in the humanities and social sciences throughout the College of Liberal Arts as well as with science and medical departments. With dual goals of advancing knowledge and connecting to the community, the department welcomes participants in its public colloquia and annual Anthropology Club Conference.

We invite applicants who think creatively about the relationship of humans to non‐humans and to the material world on topics related to (for example) the environment, biology, geology, climate change and ecology (including indigenous forms of ecological knowledge). Our priority is to hire an archaeologist or a cultural anthropologist.
