Industrial Heritage and Archaeology at Michigan Technological University seeks to fill two Tenure/Tenure Track faculty positions in the Department of Social Sciences. I am not on either search committee, so please do not send application material to me personally. Address all official correspondence to the respective search chairs.
These searches are much wider than archaeology, so please share them with potentially interested colleagues and students. We hope to see a diverse group of applicants that may contribute in exciting ways to our graduate and undergraduate programs.
