Detailed Job Description

Linguistic Anthropologist with an active research agenda who possesses advanced skills in both linguistic and ethnographic methods. Topical and geographic specializations are open. The successful candidate will teach core undergraduate and graduate level classes in linguistic anthropology, as well as courses in their areas of specialization.


The Department of Anthropology of The University of Alabama invites applications for an entry level tenure-track position in linguistic anthropology, to begin August, 2015. The PhD is required at the time of appointment. We seek a linguistic anthropologist with an active research agenda who possesses advanced skills in both linguistic and ethnographic methods. Topical and geographic specializations are open, although the applicant should complement existing specialties in the department’s four-field anthropology program. The successful candidate will teach core undergraduate and graduate level classes in linguistic anthropology, as well as courses in their areas of specialization.

The Department of Anthropology takes a traditional four-field approach to the BA, MA,
and PhD degrees, emphasizing two areas of specialization that crosscut sub-disciplines:
biocultural medical anthropology and the archaeology of complex societies in the Americas. The successful candidate will be able to assist graduate students in one or both of these tracks by serving on committees, providing instruction in linguistic and ethnographic methods, and helping students prepare to do research in the candidate’s research region or language. Applicants should also have ongoing projects and plans for future research that span sub-disciplinary boundaries.

To apply, go to (http://facultyjobs.ua.edu) and complete the online application.
Upload (1) a letter of application (outlining research interests, plans and relevant experience) including the names of and contact information for three references; (2) a curriculum vitae; (3) examples of manuscripts (for submission as publications) and/or published articles and (4) teaching evaluations (if available).
