The Department of Anthropology at the University of Northern British Columbia invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track, Assistant Professor in Social-Cultural Anthropology with a focus on Global Indigenous Cultural Heritage (regional specialization open). By Indigenous we mean the earliest known inhabitants of a territory that underwent colonization, whether recently or in the more distant past. Global Indigenous populations might include: the Sami of Scandinavia and Russia, the foragers and reindeer-herding populations of northern Russia and Eurasia, the Mayan, Quechua or other Indigenous peoples of the Americas, the Maori and other peoples of the Pacific, or populations such as the Ju/’Hoansi of southern Africa. As an institution committed to fostering an inclusive and transformative learning environment, UNBC values high quality and innovation in both teaching and scholarship. We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate who will complement and work well with colleagues both within and beyond the discipline of anthropology. UNBC privileges an interdisciplinary ethos and we seek a candidate with a demonstrated commitment to interdisciplinary research, as well as a willingness and ability to teach in other departments in our Faculty. A collegial and collaborative approach to work in the department, the Faculty of Indigenous Studies, Social Sciences and Humanities, and the University, such as in teaching and service, is essential. The proposed start date is August 1, 2022.
