Adjunct instructor, Biological variation and evolution

We are currently trying to identify someone who could teach one of the following courses for us this coming fall 2018 semester. Please contact Department Chair Wendy Regoeczi at

ANT 101 Human Biocultural Evolution
Course Description:
Students are introduced to the fundamental principles of organic evolution. These are applied to survey and interpret critical anatomical and behavioral adaptations that characterize the earliest primates to modern humans. Factors involved in the origin of broad spectrum intelligence, tool use, and culture are considered relative to patterns of modern human biological and cultural variation.

ANT 301 Human Biological Variation
Course Description:
Prerequisite: ANT 101 Human Biocultural Evolution or equivalent. This course explores contemporary human biological variation and adaptability within a scientific evolutionary and biocultural framework. Special emphasis is placed on human adaptation to the environment, and general themes in the course include the evolutionary/genetic, developmental/physiological, and cultural/behavioral forces that contribute to contemporary human biobehavioral variation. Accordingly, this course surveys key areas within the study of human biological variation, including human classification, general trends in human evolution, human population genetics, demography and epidemiology, growth and development, and human adaptation to ecological stressors, including climate, diet, stress, and infectious disease.
