The Department of Sociology at the University of Central Arkansas seeks an anthropologist for a continuing lecturer position to begin August 15, 2014. The ideal candidate will be a broadly trained and experienced anthropologist willing to teach courses across the lower and upper-division levels to support our minor program in anthropology, with preference given to candidates with demonstrated teaching or research experience in two of the four traditional subfields of anthropology. Qualified candidates with any combination of primary and secondary subfield training will be considered; areas of specialization and regional emphasis are open. Candidates should be committed to excellence in teaching and service in an undergraduate program. A Ph.D. in anthropology or archaeology is preferred, but highly qualified candidates with a master’s degree in one of these fields will be considered. The department offers a collegial and supportive work environment. The standard teaching load is four courses per semester (2-3 preparations); a course reduction may be possible for exceptional service or research-related activities.
