Position Summary
Department of History and Anthropology

In addition to working with students enrolled in the anthropology program, our faculty also provide learning opportunities for students in other programs (e.g. Social Science, History and Historic Preservation, Social Studies Education, Chemistry, Biology, Freshman Experience).

The ideal candidate for this position would excel in teaching both introductory and upper-level courses in the Anthropology and Social Science programs. A demonstrated ability to help prepare students for non-academic jobs in anthropology and the social sciences is essential. We are particularly interested in applicants with a demonstrable dedication to undergraduate education and with an appreciation of the regional service mission of a mid-sized university. The successful candidate will communicate a clear vision for contributing to a rigorous four-field anthropology curriculum while also providing individualized student support and opportunities for student success.

Required Qualifications

  • MA or MS in Anthropology (Degree must be from a regionally accredited or internationally accredited/government certified University).
  • Demonstrated ability to teach cultural and linguistic anthropology (including ethnographic methods), social science research methods, and upper-level classes related to candidate's specialization/expertise
  • Demonstrated excellence in teaching face-to-face classes at college/university level as graduate assistant, instructor, or above
  • Demonstrated ability or willingness to learn to teach blended, hybrid, and fully online courses
  • Demonstrated experience as an applied social scientist
  • Demonstrated commitment to undergraduate education and regional service mission of a mid-sized university
  • Demonstrated strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Demonstrated commitment to collegiality when interacting with others within the University community

As a public regional university with a graduate mission, Southeast seeks candidates with a commitment to excellent undergraduate and graduate education and student success within the framework of the teacher-scholar model. Applications of instructional technology and pedagogical research are supported through the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of Online Learning. Successful candidates will contribute to the development of innovative curricula and delivery strategies, including traditional, blended, and online formats, and participate in initiatives promoting student success, retention, and degree completion.
