The University of Massachusetts Amherst is the flagship campus of the 5-
campus publicly funded UMass system. It is located in the Connecticut 
River Valley, 90 miles west of Boston and 180 miles northeast of New York 
City. UMass Amherst hosts nearly 19,000 undergraduate students and 5,600 
graduate students, and nearly 900 tenure system faculty. The Department of 
Anthropology has 20 faculty, 175 undergraduate majors and 82 graduate 
students in our MA/ PhD program. The Department of Anthropology is 
dedicated to increasing the number of faculty and students from 
traditionally underrepresented groups. 

UMass Amherst anthropology faculty works closely with their counterparts 
in the area private colleges (Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and 
Smith) in curricular planning. The faculty is unionized. Benefits include 
a choice of either the state pension plan or the optional retirement 
program (faculty and state contributions invested with TIAA-CREF, Lincoln 
or VALIC), where new employees contribute 9% of the first $30,000 of 
salary on a pre-tax basis. There are ten different health insurance 
options, where the state pays 75% of the premium. Salary range: $52,000-
55,000 per year, dependent upon qualifications and experience. There are 
also possibilities for additional compensation through grants and 
contracts. 

UMass Amherst prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. 
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts does not allow health insurance benefits 
for domestic partners, but does provide them with such benefits as tuition 
waivers for the University system, family sick and medical leave, and use 
of certain facilities. Under the Massachusetts constitution, gay and 
lesbian couples who are or become residents of Massachusetts are allowed 
to marry and then the spouse of the employee may also enjoy health 
benefits.

continues until the position is filled.
