Assistant Professor Environmental Archaeology

The Department of Archaeology invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in archaeological/environmental science with focus on human-environment interaction, paleo-ethnoecology, historical ecology or related areas in environmental archaeology. Regional specialization in the Pacific Northwest is prioritized but other areas will be given consideration.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority. Simon Fraser University, located in the greater Vancouver area, is committed to an equity employment program that includes special measures to achieve diversity among its faculty and staff. The Department of Archaeology has a gender imbalance among its faculty members so we particularly encourage applications from all qualified women as well as aboriginal Canadians, persons with disabilities, and members of visible minorities.

Applicants are asked to submit a curriculum vitae including names and addresses for three referees, a cover letter outlining research strengths as they relate to the position description, and a summary of teaching experience and interests.

Submit complete applications electronically to "Search Committee Chair” by April 10, 2017. Under the authority of the University Act personal information that is required by the University for academic appointment competitions will be collected. For further details see the Collection Notice.  

The position is subject to availability of funding and final approval by the SFU Board of Governors. The planned start for the position is September 1, 2017.
