Hello all, 
Michigan Technological University’s Industrial Archaeology program is hiring for a third Tenure/Tenure-track faculty position this year. This open-level position will be filled by an industrial archaeologist. I am on this search committee, but questions should be directed to the chair first (Patrick Martin, [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]><mailto:[log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]>>).
Full post:

Cheers

Open Rank, Tenure-Track

Department of Social Sciences

Michigan Technological University

The Department of Social Sciences at Michigan Technological University invites applications for a tenured or tenure-track position in Industrial Archaeology (http://www.mtu.edu/social-sciences/graduate/archaeology/ <http://www.mtu.edu/social-sciences/graduate/archaeology/><http://www.mtu.edu/social-sciences/graduate/archaeology/ <http://www.mtu.edu/social-sciences/graduate/archaeology/>>).  The successful applicant will demonstrate an established research program in Archaeology, Anthropology, Historic Preservation, History, and/or Heritage Studies to contribute to the department’s established graduate program in Industrial Heritage and Archaeology.  While the rank is open, we invite experienced and/or senior candidates who will add to the breadth of the archaeology program through a program of fieldwork, as well as a broad theoretical and substantive interest in topics such as industrial landscapes and communities, the processes of industrialization/deindustrialization, heritage and cultural resource management and interpretation.  The successful applicant will teach graduate and undergraduate courses in their specialty area, as well as one undergraduate course that contributes to the University General Education program; a two-two teaching load is normal.
The Department of Social Sciences is home to North America’s only graduate program focused on Industrial Heritage & Archaeology, offering both MS and PhD degrees The program began in the early 1990s and has been the institutional and editorial home for the Society for Industrial Archeology since 1995, with faculty serving in leadership roles throughout the succeeding years.  The core faculty group includes archaeologists, anthropologists, historians of technology, environmental and architectural historians, and an historical geographer, embedded within an interdisciplinary Social Sciences Department that also includes political scientists, sociologists and both world and European historians.  
The Department offers undergraduate degree programs in anthropology, history, and social science in addition to the M.S. and Ph.D. programs in Industrial Heritage and Archaeology and in Environmental and Energy Policy. We contribute to campus-wide general education and collaborate with research partners across the university. Michigan Tech hosts the largest Peace Corps Master’s International Program (combining Peace Corps service abroad with an MS degree from MTU) and a new Office of Surface Mining VISTA Master’s program which combines one year of domestic field service in a former mining community with an MTU MS degree. Social Sciences faculty members are directly involved in the leadership and student supervision of both of these programs.

Michigan Tech is a mid-sized public research university (RU/H) with approximately 7,000 undergraduate and graduate students from across the nation and around the world. These students enroll in 130 degree programs in arts, humanities, and social sciences; business and economics; computing; engineering; forestry and environmental science; natural and physical sciences; and technology. Michigan Tech is ranked in the top tier of national universities according to U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges 2015.” The student-faculty ratio is 13:1 and 49% of classes have fewer than 20 students. The university values cross-disciplinary faculty and student contributions to global sustainability.

Situated on the hills bordering the beautiful Portage Waterway and only minutes from several Lake Superior beaches, the area offers a bounty of cultural and recreational opportunities. The historic downtown waterfront provides unique shopping, dining, and cultural opportunities in addition to serving as the mainland headquarters for Isle Royale National Park. Local schools are known for their high quality and commitment to being one of the top five districts for student performance in the state of Michigan. The Houghton County Memorial Airport offers jet service to and from Chicago twice daily on United Airlines. This environment, combined with a competitive compensation package, results in an excellent quality of life.
