University of Arizona: Assistant Professor (Tenure Track)

The School of Anthropology at the University of Arizona invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in Biological Anthropology, to start August 2015, contingent upon availability of funding. While the specific area of research is open, we seek an outstanding scholar whose research program focuses on fundamental questions in human evolution. Examples include (but are not limited to) research areas that explore past and present human biology using evolutionary physiology and anatomy; signals of local ecology (e.g. gut microbiome); and brain/cognitive evolution. To that end, we would appreciate a discussion in your cover letter that includes how your research advances our understanding of human evolution.

Our current strengths converge on human health through research in evolutionary medicine, physiology, biomechanics, endocrinology, and ecology. Our ideal candidate will have a multi-disciplinary approach that builds on these strengths. Applicants should have Ph.D. in hand by August 1st 2015, a strong record of research and publications, including evidence of efforts to generate external funding, and a clear commitment to teaching and mentoring at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The School is seeking an individual who is able to work with diverse students and colleagues, and who has experience with a variety of teaching methods and curricular perspectives. As an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer, the University of Arizona recognizes the power of a diverse community and encourages applications from individuals with varied experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds.
