ARCHAEOLOGY: The Department of Anthropology at Hartwick College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track appointment in Archaeology at the rank of Assistant Professor starting in August 2018, pending final administrative approval. We seek candidates with an active scholarly program in archaeology that can facilitate student research. Candidates should have an interest and ability to teach a local field school. Preference for applicants with experience in museum collections. Minimum qualifications of a Ph.D. by the time of the appointment. Specific teaching assignments will include Fundamentals of Archaeology, specific topics in archaeology, a four field Introduction to Anthropology, and possibly general education courses, including First Year Seminars.
