University of Oxford

PROFESSORSHIP OF BIOLOGICAL ANTHROPOLOGY

Applications are invited for the above post, tenable from 1 September 2006, or such later date as may be arranged.

The Professorship of Biological Anthropology at Oxford has historically been one of the most prestigious in the country. The University of Oxford wishes to appoint a candidate who can take that tradition forward. To this end the successful candidate will have an international research reputation in Biological Anthropology, involving human genetics, human evolution/palaeoanthropology (either genetic or morphological), or primatology.

The Institute of Biological Anthropology is now merged with the Department of Zoology, and the Professorship is part of the latter Department, while also being affiliated, for academic purposes, to the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography. The Professor would be expected to build Biological Anthropology, and one of his or her primary duties would be to provide teaching and other support for the Human Sciences degree, in which Biological Anthropology is a core subject.

A non-stipendiary Fellowship at Linacre College is attached to the Professorship.

HOPE PROFESSORSHIP OF ZOOLOGY (ENTOMOLOGY)

Applications are invited for the above post, tenable from 1 September 2006, or such later date as may be arranged.

The Hope Professor will be based in the Department of Zoology, but will also have access to the Hope Entomological Collections in the University Museum and to the University's Field Station at Wytham.

The successful candidate will have an international research reputation in an aspect of entomology that integrates with one or more the Department's main research groupings in behaviour, conservation biology, development, ecology, evolution, disease, or ornithology. The appointee will be expected to build and lead a substantial and academically excellent research group that integrates with others in the Department. The appointee will also be expected to teach and examine on the Biological Sciences undergraduate course and the M.Sc. course in Biology (Integrative Bioscience).

A non-stipendiary Fellowship at Jesus College is attached to the Professorship.
