Tenure-track or tenured professor in human evolutionary biology at Harvard

Position Description:  The Department of Human Evolutionary Biology seeks to appoint a tenure-track or tenured professor in the fields of physiology or behavioral ecology, including, but not limited to, areas such as energetics, life-history, aging, immune function, and reproductive ecology. We are interested in candidates who address these fields from an evolutionary perspective in humans or non-human primates, and welcome candidates whose research includes fieldwork as well as laboratory-based studies (including on model organisms). The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2017. The appointee will teach and advise at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Department of Human Evolutionary Biology values diversity among its faculty, and we are committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community. We particularly encourage applications from historically underrepresented groups, including women and minorities.

Economics and Biology of Contests Conference 2016

From 27–28 February 2016, Brisbane will play host to an exciting gathering of economic and evolutionary thinkers who will explore the potential for a closer synthesis between evolution and economics in order to understand both the economics and biology of behaviour in contest.

The Economics and Biology of Contests Conference aims to bring together leading economists, psychologists and evolutionary biologists to explore contest behaviour in economic, political and social environments. The conference will provide an opportunity for researchers to discuss the economic, psychological and evolutionary biology approaches to this topic, explore common ground and identify collaborative opportunities.

The call for papers is now open and will close 16 November 2015. Submit your abstract via rsvp@qut.edu.au
