The ideal candidate will complement our integrative study of Human Adaptation, Ecology, and Evolution. The area of specialization is open and can be, but is not limited to, cooperation and conflict, epidemiology, cultural continuity and variation through time, evolution of culture and intelligence, human interactions with plants and animals, life history and child development, religion, gender relationships, social structure and inequity, and hominid evolution. Research approaches can include but are not limited to demography, ecological and environmental anthropology, ethnobiology, archaeometry, human behavioral ecology, cognitive archaeology, genetics, human variation, and biomedical anthropology. MU’s Anthropology Department has long been recognized as a leading anthropology program among departments with a focus on the scientific study of relationships among culture, behavior, health, human biology and evolution, both throughout the present world and through prehistory. We have an internationally recognized program in these areas, and we seek a strong scholar to build on our strengths.
