The undergraduate and graduate degree programs of both colleges rank among the largest and strongest in the United States. The University’s award-winning faculty is known for research productivity and innovative teaching across disciplines. The successful candidate may have the opportunity to work with UGA’s Cultural Landscape Laboratory, Center for Geospatial Research, Center for Archaeological Sciences, and/or the Center for Virtual History, as well as participate in development activities related to the new digital scholarship laboratory associated with the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts.
