Minimum qualifications: PhD in anthropology, specializing in biological anthropology, by August 2017. We seek a biological anthropologist with a strong record of teaching, research, publication, the potential to obtain external funding, and an interest in collaboration with sociocultural faculty, as well as researchers across the university.
