Northeastern Illinois University Department of Anthropology invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor in Biological Anthropology. We seek a biological anthropologist with expertise in any area of modern human biological variation or paleoanthropology, except bioarchaeology. The successful candidate will be expected to teach existing relevant biological anthropology courses as well as develop advanced courses in his or her area(s) of expertise. The individual will also participate in NEIU’s interdisciplinary programs as appropriate. We are especially interested in a colleague who will enthusiastically contribute to our active department and who has a demonstrated commitment to teaching excellence, providing fieldwork and collaborative research opportunities for students, and educating a diverse student body. An active research agenda is expected. Appointment, pending budgetary approval, is to begin August 2012. An earned doctorate at the time of appointment is required.
