College Fellow in Human Evolutionary Biology

The Department of Human Evolutionary Biology seeks applications for a College Fellow in Human Evolutionary Biology, specializing in any relevant area of the discipline. We are especially interested in scholars with expertise in fields such as human and /or non-human primate and behavior and ecology, reproductive biology, and life history theory.

Teaching duties will include teaching three courses or their equivalents. This will likely involve some combination of a lecture course, undergraduate seminar, one or more sections of sophomore tutorial, and section teaching in a department foundation course. The Fellow might also advise and evaluate senior honors theses and perform other duties as required.

The appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year, contingent on performance, position availability, curricular need, and divisional dean authorization.
