The Paleoanthropology Society was founded in 1992. It recognizes that paleoanthropology is multidisciplinary in nature and the organization's central goal is to bring together physical anthropologists, archaeologists, paleontologists, geologists and a range of other researchers whose work has the potential to shed light on hominid behavioral and biological evolution.

Data Sharing Survey

In cooperation with the American Association of Biological Anthropologists, we request that you take this anonymous survey on data sharing attitudes and practices of researchers in natural sciences, housed at http://bit.ly/DataShareSurvey    We are interested in the views of archaeologists, biological anthropologists, paleoanthropologists and other colleagues in related fields. All are invited to take the survey.

The results will be discussed in an article to appear later this year in the Yearbook of Physical Anthropology, and a link will be added to this site when available. Thank you.

Harvard Human Evolutionary Biology Position

Tenure-Track Professorship in Human Evolutionary Biology
Department of Human Evolutionary Biology
Faculty of Arts and Sciences
Harvard University

The Department of Human Evolutionary Biology is conducting an open field search for a tenure-track professor. We welcome applications in all subfields of human evolutionary biology and are particularly interested in researchers focused on human paleobiology, including but not limited to hominin/hominoid paleontology and paleoecology, especially within the context of climate and habitat change. 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 at the level of Assistant Professor and to begin on July 1, 2022. 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.
