One-year position at Northeastern Illinois University

The successful candidate will teach 2-3 sections of our introductory biological anthropology course each semester and our ANTH 356 Human Variation course in fall. Several course options exist for spring, including Human Growth and Development or Paleoanthropology. We will also consider proposals for new courses (except in primatology or osteology) in the candidate’s area of expertise.
