The Evolution & Medicine Review
Tenure track position at U Arizona

Tenure track position at U Arizona

The University of Arizona in Tucson has a tenure track opening for a biologist working in evolutionary medicine.

The Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona invites applications for an Assistant Professor position (tenure track) to begin in August 2022. We seek a candidate in the broadly defined area of Evolutionary Medicine at the intersection of ecology and evolutionary biology and human health. Candidates whose research focuses on any aspect of the ecology and evolution of disease and health are encouraged to apply. A focus on any organism or system with implications for human health is welcome. Founded in 1975, the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona was the first department of its kind in the world, pioneering a model for the organization of biology that is now in use in many of the world’s leading universities. Our focus is broad, spanning levels of organization from molecular genetics and organismal function as they relate to evolution and ecology, from population and community ecology to biological diversity, phylogeny and macroevolution. Our program’s unique personality comes from our faculty members who combine theory and empirical work and take an integrative approach to blending disciplines in their research and teaching. Members of the department collaborate with life science faculty in the Colleges of Science, Medicine, Mel & Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, Agriculture & Life Sciences, and Social & Behavioral Sciences, the Cancer Center, and the BIO5 Institute. We are excited about building an inclusive and diverse environment for research, education, and service. 
Tucson is a fun, affordable, welcoming, and livable city located among the biologically diverse Madrean Sky Islands in the Sonoran Desert. The city is recognized internationally for its food culture and in 2015 was named the first UNESCO World City of Gastronomy in the United States. We have great weather and are surrounded by spectacular scenery, including numerous national parks and wilderness areas. The Tucson area has a surprising range of habitats, amazing subtropical biodiversity, and is only a few hours drive from numerous tropical habitats in Mexico.

Post Doctoral Fellowship in Global Health at Yale

Post Doctoral Fellowship in Global Health at Yale

The multidisciplinary academic program in Global Health at Yale seeks a Postdoctoral Fellow for the 2018-2019 academic year, with an option of renewal for the following academic year.  The Fellow will teach two undergraduate courses (one per semester) drawing on her respective areas of expertise in Global Health.

She will also pursue research with a mentor of her choosing and participate in the interdisciplinary community provided by the Global Health Justice Partnership, directed by Professors Amy Kapczynski, Alice M. Miller, and Gregg Gonsalves. Participating Yale faculty in the program include members of Sociology, Anthropology, Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies, Biomedical Engineering, Medicine, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Public Health, History of Science and Medicine, Ethnicity Race & Migration. Successful candidates will also be granted a budget to host events that contribute to interdisciplinary conversations about Global Health.

This program, administered by the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and led by the Global Health Justice Partnership, develops the ability of Yale undergraduates to think critically and analytically about key challenges in global health today.  Students balance their appreciation for the scientific, biomedical and technical issues related to diseases, their treatment and prevention, with their growing understanding of the historical, social, economic and political concerns that are implicated in how health is determined and experienced in the 21st century.


Ph.D. awarded between 2015 and June 15, 2018 in any science, engineering, technology or mathematics (STEM) field or an M.D. awarded during the same time period; demonstrated record of interdisciplinary engagement beyond the STEM or biomedical fields, in particular with the social sciences and/or the humanities.
