Assistant professor

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 2023. We seek an outstanding scholar with an active research program that takes an evolutionary perspective on the impacts of variable and changing environments on human and non-human primate health and well-being. We have a strong preference for primatologists and/or human biologists working among living populations. Additional areas of interest include (but are not limited to) One Health, reproductive health, genomics/genetics, early life biology, life history theory, the developmental origins of health and disease (DOHaD), and metabolomics/energetics. The ideal candidate will have a strong conceptual basis to their research program and address fundamental questions in Biological Anthropology. We also seek an individual who is able to sensitively work with students and colleagues from diverse backgrounds, is committed to creating and maintaining inclusive environments, and who has experience with a variety of teaching methods and curricular perspectives.

Our current strengths converge on the environmental determinants of health, well-being, and reproductive success through research in evolutionary medicine, endocrinology, behavior, and ecology. We are also committed to community outreach and engagement, including advocacy, conservation, and community-driven research designs. Our ideal candidate will have a multi-disciplinary approach that builds on and enhances these strengths.

The University of Arizona is an R1 institution. Applicants should have a strong record of research and publications, including evidence of efforts to generate external funding. We are excited to add a colleague with a clear commitment to mentoring, teaching, and training undergraduate and graduate students in the lab and/or field, and who will enhance our student training in Biological Anthropology. The strongest candidates will have an excellent track record of ethical engagement in the human and/or non-human primate communities in which they conduct research. Applicants must have completed their Ph.D. by August 1, 2023.

Application reviews will begin on December 9, 2022.
