Department of Anthropology

We discover what it means to be human in our past, present, and future by examining the evolution and contemporary comparative study of human biology, culture, and materials throughout time and in every part of the world.

President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The Department of Anthropology invites applications from scholars in anthropological archaeology whose geographic focus is in Latin America, Mesoamerica, and/or the Caribbean region. The department seeks a scholar who is pushing the boundaries of research, teaching, and service involving Indigenous or African diaspora communities, issues of colonization, urbanization and migration, contemporary heritage concerns, community-engaged or -participatory approaches, and decolonial frameworks.
