Preferred Qualifications: The successful candidate will have strong leadership qualities, administrative expertise, and the ability to foster collaborations between the CAI and other units within and beyond the University.

Within the Department of Anthropology, typical teaching load for full-time research active faculty is two courses per year and graduate faculty duties.
The Center and the Department: The Center for Archaeological Investigations (CAI) is a research unit within the College of Liberal Arts, with links to the Department of Anthropology. The primary function of CAI is to conduct high quality archaeological research. As a unit of Southern Illinois University Carbondale the CAI recognizes a specific mission to do research in southern Illinois and adjacent areas, but staff and affiliates may pursue wide ranging topical and international research interests. CAI research is virtually all externally funded and consists of contracts as well as competitive research grants. Although not an instructional unit, the CAI cooperates with the Department of Anthropology in providing training and research opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students in the Department of Anthropology, and CAI staff work with Anthropology students and do some teaching within the Department. As funding and agency requirements allow, the Center also publishes the results of its research in its own publication series and in other outlets. The CAI curates extensive archaeological collections from southern Illinois as well as the large Black Mesa collection from northern Arizona.
The Department has BA, MA, and PhD programs, and emphasizes the integration of the traditional four subfields of Anthropology. We are one of the premier units on campus in terms of the quality, quantity, and visibility of research produced by its faculty. Six of our faculty (including the first CAI director) have been named University Distinguished Professor, and nine of our doctoral students have won the annual Outstanding Dissertation Award. We also strive for excellence in the classroom, and two of our faculty have been named as Outstanding Teachers in the College of Liberal Arts.
Application Deadline: November 17, 2014, or until filled.
