Research work in the area of human behavioural and life history evolution.

We currently seek a Postdoctoral Research Associate for up to 3 years in Mathematical Biology to work in the area of human behavioural and life history evolution.

In this role you will simulate behavioural and social changes that could have driven the evolution of human longevity past the end of female menopause. You will develop a mathematical framework for modelling the complex organisation in a population and simulate the impact of social dynamics in potentially driving human evolution from the ancestral state. This modelling will allow you to quantitatively investigate and extend the current verbal formulations of the Grandmother Hypothesis and the Hunting Hypothesis of human life-history evolution.
