Detailed Job Description

The proposed archaeology hire will strengthen the department’s research emphasis on the “Archaeology of Complex Societies of the Americas.” We seek an archaeologist with an on-going field research project in Mesoamerica or Andean South America. The successful applicant will also contribute to the newly created Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies Program and Minor (LACLS) in the College of Arts and Sciences.
