Prospective Students ◦ Estudiantes Interesados

Join the Human Sociality Lab at WSU

I am currently accepting students interested in completing a PhD in either evolutionary or cultural anthropology. Applicants must be open to completing fieldwork with humans, whether outside or inside the US, and willing to take a scientific approach to anthropology, including the pre-registration of research projects, the collection of quantitative data, and the rigorous analysis of data using cutting-edge statistical models. (We'll train you in all of those things here at WSU; you just need to be open to those approaches!) I especially encourage applications from students with interests in:

  • Social and economic changes affecting populations globally, including (but not limited to) climate change, globalization, market integration, and acculturation

  • Applied work, including (but not limited to) active collaboration with study populations, governmental- or non-governmental organizations, and schools

  • Cooperation, including (but not limited to) collective action, common-pool resource problems, partner choice, and bargaining

  • Risk management, including (but not limited to) food security, economic security, mobility and migration

  • Latin America and Latinx communities globally


Our three-field department has notable strengths in (alphabetically): Africa, agent-based modeling, applied anthropology, biocultural anthropology, cultural evolution, demography, ethnobotany, evolutionary psychology, horticulturalists, human behavioral ecology, human biology, human ecology, hunter-gatherers, Latin America and Latinx communities, mathematical modeling, the Pacific and Inland Northwest (US and Canada), pastoralists, and the Southwestern US.

International and/or undocumented students are welcome to apply.
