This Fellow will join a growing department with interest in applied perspectives on the anthropology of health, broadly conceived. Candidates should have personal research interests that combine topics and tools from the social/behavioral and physical/life sciences to address problems relating to global/public health, human biology, and/or evolutionary medicine.
