|Institution Type:||College / University|

REED COLLEGE Department of Anthropology invites applications for a tenure-track position in sociocultural anthropology to commence August 2014. Rank is open, but a minimum of four semesters of probationary Reed teaching are required before review for tenure. The position is attached to an endowed chair, the Ruth C. Greenberg Chair of American Indian Studies, which will be awarded in the event of tenure. We seek a teacher-scholar with research and teaching specialization in Native North America. We welcome a colleague whose research combines situated ethnographic and historical investigation and control of relevant field language(s) with a macroscopic scale of inquiry. Theoretical expertise should include both contemporary approaches and broader historical contexts of the discipline and of Western social thought. Topical specialization open but we especially welcome applications from candidates whose research addresses some subset of the following: politics of indigeneity, settler colonialism, ontology and cosmology, kinship and relatedness, history and/of anthropology, material culture, museum anthropology, legal anthropology, environmental anthropology, or linguistic anthropology. Active engagement with contemporary Native American communities preferred. Ph.D or ABD required.
Reed is on the semester system with a teaching load of five courses per year. In addition faculty supervise year-long senior theses, required of all Reed graduates. Reed College is a community that believes that cultural diversity is essential to the excellence of our academic program. In your application materials, we welcome a description of how, as a scholar, teacher, or community member, you would engage and sustain the commitment to diversity and inclusion articulated in Reed College's diversity statement (http://www.reed.edu/diversity/index.html). Please submit a cover letter outlining research and teaching interests and experience, CV, and three letters of recommendation to Professor Charlene Makley, Chair, Anthropology Search Committee, at https://secure.interfolio.com/apply/22029 by October 15, 2013.
