Dear PaleoNet members,

I would like to bring your attention to two new tenure-track positions
in a Biological Sciences department that might be suitable to

Benedictine University is a Catholic liberal arts institution located in
the research corridor of metropolitan Chicago with nationally recognized
undergraduate programs in the sciences.  The University is in the midst
of tremendous growth in the area of life sciences and, consistent with
the University’s vision statement, the institution is making a
significant commitment of resources to support these programs.  The
Biological Sciences department is primarily an undergraduate teaching
department, with a major emphasis on including undergraduates in faculty
research. Several faculty have affiliations with nearby Field Museum,
Argonne National Lab, and Morton Arboretum, among others. Start up funds
are available.
Major focus on teaching human anatomy with cadavers; a vertebrate
paleontologist would be a good fit. Additional anatomist here focuses on
neanderthal morphometrics and the morphometrics lab is well equipped.
Open teaching/research focus, so long as candidates use "big data" and
modelling in their research and can incorporate such approaches into
undergraduate teaching. The College has a 16-computer cluster (382 CPUs)
that can be routinely used without time/user-sharing constraints. (I've
run analyses for weeks on end without complaints.) Nearby Argonne has
enormously greater computational resources with much interest in
research collaborations.

Review of applicants will commence quickly starting Feb. 1. Feel free to
share announcement.

Please contact me OFFLIST is you would additional information.
