Job posting

This job has been previously posted. We are now permitted to
consider non-Canadian candidates not currently eligible for
Canadian resident status. The starting date has been changed to
January 1, 1997

The Department of Anthropology and Classical Studies, University of
Waterloo, is lo2oking for an individual to fill a tenure-track
position starting January 1, 1997. The Anthropology program needs include
teaching Introductory Human Evolution (first year level), Archaeological
Method and Theory, North American Prehistory, and your own specialty area.
Ability to teach Introductory Socio-Cultural Anthropology and courses on
Canadian Prehistory would be a definite asset. In Classical Studies the
successful candidate will be expected to teach undergraduate courses in
Greek and Roman art and architecture, as well as survey courses in the
history and culture of Greece and/or Rome, and elementary to
intermediate-level courses in Greek and/or Latin. Opportunities also
exist for senior-level instruction in the candidate's area of
specialisation. We are looking for an excellent teacher who can contribute
in a number of ways to a small undergraduate department. Research area is
open, but the person must have an active program with publications or
potential publications. Salary range commensurate with qualifications and
experience. Applicants should send their CV and arrange for at least three
referees to send letters of reference directly to Prof. R.L. Fowler, Chair,
Department of Classical Studies, University of Waterloo, Waterloo,
Ontario N2L 3G1 by September 1, 1996. The University
of Waterloo encourages applications from all qualified individuals,
including women, members of visible minorities, native peoples, and
persons with disabilities. This appointment is subject to the availability
of funds. It is the intention of the University of Waterloo to fill its
vacancies with recent Ph.D. graduates appointed as Assistant Professors
wherever possible.

A note of explanation: the above advertisement is identical to the one
sent out in March, except that we have now obtained permission from Human
Resources Canada to consider applications from non-Canadians; the relevant
sentence limiting the applications has been removed, and the deadline for
applications and the start date have been moved back. Applications
are still to be sent to the Chair of the Classical Studies
Department, as noted above; as of September 1, the name change will
take effect and the Department of Anthropology and Classical Studies
will formally come into being (at that point there will also be a
new Chair). As we said before, we recognize that the list of courses is
daunting, reflecting as it does the ideal wishes of both parts of the
department; more simply put, individuals with a Ph.D. (or near
completion) in one discipline and some post-graduate
exposure in the other should feel free to apply.
