Michigan State University has an opening for a postdoctoral research associate on the Evo-Med-Ed Project, an NSF-funded project that aims to design, pilot, and test a set of interactive and integrative instructional materials for biology focused on the evolutionary roots of selected human medical conditions. The Evo-Med-Ed Project is a direct offshoot of the Evo-Ed Project (www.evo-ed.org), but differs significantly in that here we explore how to engage students in evolutionary medicine curriculum, with explicit interdisciplinary connections to the relevant social and cultural contexts in which human medical conditions reside.
Starting salary for this postdoctoral research associate position is $50K, and the position is anticipated to begin on or near Oct. 10, 2020. The position is for one-year, with renewal for a second year possible based on shared interests.
To apply, submit an application letter, a curriculum vitae, two writing samples, and complete contact information for two letters of recommendation to careers.msu.edu (https://careers.msu.edu/en-us/job/503896/research-associatefixed-term). Questions regarding this position may be directed to Dr. Peter White, pwhite@msu.edu. Review of application materials will begin on August 31 and continue until the position is filled.
