Union College (Schenectady, New York) seeks applicants for a tenure track position at the assistant professor level. We seek socio-cultural candidates who can offer courses in at least one of the following geographic areas: Africa, East or Southeast Asia, Latin America/Caribbean, or the Middle East. Topically, we seek scholars who are interested in economic anthropology, medical/ science/technology, food, gender, ecology/ environmentalism, and/or tourism. However, we will also consider candidates with other teaching and research interests that add to those of our current faculty. In addition, we welcome applications from candidates who are committed to leading, at some point during their career at Union, an ethnographic field school for undergraduates on the model of the department†s current term-long field schools in Fiji, Tasmania, and Tanzania. Candidates with Ph.D. in hand and teaching experience are preferred, but not required.The Department prides itself on strong teaching and relationships with students, especially in the field. Union also values, and offers substantial support for, scholarship. Further information about Union College and the Anthropology Department may be found at www.union.edu. Applicants should send a digital dossier (in PDF format), including cover letter, writing sample, one or two sample syllabi, C.V., and the names and addresses of three referees to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 4, 2013 to be considered for an interview at the AAA meetings. Union College is an equal opportunity employer and strongly committed to student and workforce diversity.
