Post-Doc : Craniofacial adaptation in Plio-Pleistocene hominins (Glendale)

Logo Midwestern University

The Postdoctoral Fellow will work on an NSF-funded project to investigate craniofacial adaptation in Plio-Pleistocene hominins related to chewing biomechanics and brain expansion using evolutionary quantitative genetics. The project is a collaboration between Midwestern University (Karen Baab, PI), Washington University St. Louis (David Strait, collaborator) and University of Calgary (Campbell Rolian, collaborator). The position will include domestic and international data collection followed by data analysis in the Baab Lab. Anticipated responsibilities include travel for data collection, data analysis, attending lab meetings, presenting research at professional meetings, preparing findings for publications and coordinating communication among the project participants. The position includes training in cranial biomechanics at the Strait Lab and viability selection modeling at the Rolian Lab. There will also be opportunities to participate in the service and teaching mission of the Department of Anatomy.
