Thought there may be a few biological anthropologists on this list that may
wish to participate (see below).
I apologize for the informal nature of this mass email, but I was hoping you
would be interested in participating in a research project I am conducting
with Dr. Natalie Langley (see below). Please also consider passing this email
along to any current biological anthropology graduate student, or graduate of
biological anthropology (MA and/or PhD) you may know (I included a shorter
description for social media below) - whether or not they have anatomical
training. We will also be posting this to various list servs, so I apologize in
advance for any duplicates you may receive.
During recent years, biological anthropologists have increasingly filled
faculty and research positions in non-anthropology departments, particularly in
anatomy departments at medical universities. As biological anthropologists, our
training in human osteology and evolutionary and comparative anatomy make us
great resources for anatomy and biology departments, both in terms of teaching
and research. However, our training in the anatomical sciences may vary
depending on our specific research and employment interests.
With this in mind, we are conducting a survey to investigate the amount and
type of anatomical training (if any) individuals with biological anthropology
degrees receive. If you have graduated with either a PhD and/or Master's in
biological anthropology, or are working on attaining either, we invite you to
complete our 5-10 minute, anonymous survey by clicking the link below. Results
from this survey are intended to help anthropology departments assess career
development and training for graduate students matriculating as anatomy
faculty, and to help anatomy departments understand the amount and type of
training of anthropology candidates. We will summarize the results in poster
format at the American Association of Clinical Anatomists meeting, and so the
outcome of the study will be available to all of you via our
and ResearchGate online presences.
If you have any questions regarding this project, please feel free to contact
Lauren Butaric or Natalie Langley at the emails provided below.
Thank you in advance for your participation,

Shorter Social Media Description
Are you a biological anthropology graduate student, or have you obtained a
graduate degree in biological anthropology? If so, PLEASE complete our survey
at the link below, which investigates the amount and type of anatomical
training among biological anthropology graduates. Thank you in advance for your
participation. Contact Natalie Langley
(langley.nata...@mayo.edu<mailto:langley.nata...@mayo.edu>) or Lauren Butaric
(lauren.buta...@dmu.edu<mailto:lauren.buta...@dmu.edu>) with any questions.
