The Department of Anthropology of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Socio-Cultural Anthropology with a focus on Latin America, beginning fall semester, 2018.

Preferred candidates should have broad graduate training in anthropology that allows them to be conversant with the various schools, debates, and paradigms around which the discipline has been organized.
