Postdoctoral Fellow in Human Heath and Evolutionary Medicine

by Ed Hagen last modified Mar 06, 2014 08:10 PM expired
The Cleveland Museum of Natural History invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow in Human Health and Evolutionary Medicine within the Division of Collections and Research. The Museum is embarking on its Centennial Transformation Project, which will result in new exhibit galleries and research space. As part of this project, a new gallery on human health is being created. The museum seeks a postdoctoral fellow to help develop content and programs in the new human health gallery. Other duties will include managing content and coordinating with the exhibit design firm and a team of scientific advisors. The successful candidate will have a strong interest in public outreach and education and research experience in one of the following areas: 1) evolutionary medicine, 2) environmental health, 3) human biology, 4) human genetics. The principal responsibility of the postdoctoral fellow will be exhibit-related activities, but research time can be negotiated depending on the fellow’s research program. The position is for one year, starting July 1, 2014, but may be renewable for a second year.


Applicants for this position should hold a M.D. or Ph.D. in a field related to human health (such as biochemistry, biological anthropology, cellular biology, genetics, immunology or physiology). The applicant should have a broad base of knowledge of human health, and demonstrated success in communicating science to the public is preferred.

The Cleveland region offers many opportunities for collaboration with other leading research programs at nearby institutions including Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals, the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland State University, and MetroHealth Hospitals, as well as a vibrant biotech community.   The museum itself also offers unique resources such as the Hamann-Todd Osteological Collection, a DNA laboratory, and the GreenCityBlueLake Institute.
