We run a weekly journal club which takes place Tuesdays at 12 pm during term time.

To be added on the mailing list email Alex Alvergne. The email list is to send out the papers we will be discussing.

We welcome enquiries from potential PhD students and Post-Docs, especially if you’re thinking about a research project in the fields of Cultural Evolution, Evolutionary Demography or Evolutionary Medicine.

For potential enquiries send an email to Alex Alvergne or Stanley Ulijaszek

The School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography supports postdoctoral and 'early career' fellowships from internal applicants and from applicants outside of Oxford.

If you are interested in making an application, the first step is to seek a mentor or sponsor who is an academic member of the School. You must have the agreement of both the individual academic and the School in order to make an application. Once you have identified a mentor, contact our Research Co-ordinator who will provide further information.

It is strongly recommended that you contact the School in good time (8-10 weeks before funder deadline) if you wish to make an application to a particular scheme or schemes. Links to the funder schemes usually supported by SAME are given below. The list is not exhaustive and other schemes may be considered.
