Position Description

The Department of Human Evolutionary Biology seeks to appoint a tenure-track or tenured professor in the fields of physiology or behavioral ecology, including, but not limited to, areas such as energetics, life-history, aging, immune function, and reproductive ecology.

We are interested in candidates who address these fields from an evolutionary perspective in humans or non-human primates, and welcome candidates whose research includes fieldwork as well as laboratory-based studies (including on model organisms).

The appointment could begin as early as July 1, 2017.

The appointee will teach and advise at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The Department of Human Evolutionary Biology values diversity among its faculty, and we are committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community. We particularly encourage applications from historically underrepresented groups, including women and minorities.

Basic Qualifications

Candidates are required to have a doctorate or terminal degree by the time the appointment begins.

Additional Qualifications

Demonstrated strong commitment to teaching and research is desired. Candidates for a tenured appointment should also evince intellectual leadership and impact on the field and potential for significant contributions to the department, University, and wider scholarly community.
