A two-year post-doctoral position in Cultural Evolution and Social Cognition is currently open at the Département d’Etudes Cognitives (DEC) of the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. This project will be conducted in collaboration with Nicolas Baumard at the Institut Jean Nicod (IJN) and Julie Grèzes at the Laboratoire de Neurosciences Cognitives (LNC).

We would like to invite everyone engaged (or interested) in the evolutionary perspective on biological, ecological, and human behaviour research. The conference subject covers all sciences that concern humans, including anthropology, (biological and cultural), psychology, linguistics, sociology, archaeology, economy, and others.
The conference shall be conducted in Polish and English.
Confirmed plenary speakers:
· Robin Dunbar (University of Oxford),

Join the live webcast! “Origins of Genus Homo” is the topic of a free public symposium hosted by the UCSD/Salk Center for Academic Research & Training in Anthropogeny (CARTA) on Friday, Feb 5th (1:00 – 5:30 pm PT), co-chaired by Steven Churchill (Duke Univ) and Philip Rightmire (Harvard Univ).
Despite discoveries of remarkable new fossils in recent years, the evolutionary events surrounding the origins of genus Homo are incompletely understood. This CARTA symposium explores evidence bearing on the emergence of our genus, focusing on possible antecedents to Homo, changes in diet and body form as Australopithecus evolved toward Homo, ancient species within the genus, and evolutionary processes likely operating 2.5 – 1.5 million years ago.

The Polish Society for Human and Evolution Studies Conference (PTNCE2015) will take place in Poznan, Poland, in September. The plenary speakers will be four outstanding scientists (from the UK, France, Austria and Germany) representing different evolutionary disciplines (paleonathropology, evolutionary psychology, evolutionary biology (cognition) and bioinformatics (molecular evolution). More information is available on the conference website.
Applications are invited for a funded PhD studentship within the Evolution, Perception and Behaviour Research Group at Northumbria University.
Deadline: 31 March 2015
