Assistant Professor in Biological Anthropology/Human Biology

The Department of Anthropology at Indiana University Bloomington seeks to hire a biological anthropologist at the rank of Assistant Professor (tenure track) to start August 2015 with PhD in hand. This hire will be shared with the undergraduate interdisciplinary Human Biology program, with teaching responsibilities split equally between the two units. We are particularly interested in a scholar with an active laboratory and/or field-based research program in human biology (broadly defined to include molecules to morphology to behavior, and from the past to the present) that is informed by evolutionary theory and that addresses questions of broad anthropological significance. The candidate should demonstrate ability and interest in innovative undergraduate teaching in the human biology program (including case-based learning and interdisciplinary team-teaching) as well as a large introductory class in biological anthropology and upper-level and graduate courses in the areas of expertise. Review of applications will begin by November 1st and will continue until the position is filled. We may conduct preliminary interviews through Skype or at the AAA meetings in Washington D.C.
