Jeffrey C. Long

Jeffrey Charles Long is an American genetic anthropologist.[1] He has been a tenured professor in the department of anthropology at the University of New Mexico since 2009, and a professor in the department of biology there since 2013. Before joining the University of New Mexico, he taught at the University of Michigan Medical School;[2] before that, he worked at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.[3][4] He is a member of the American Society of Human Genetics.[3] In April 2010, he presented a study at a meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists which found evidence that early humans interbred with Neanderthals.[1][5] He has also studied the relationship between race and genetics, with his collaborators on this topic including Kenneth M. Weiss and Rick Kittles.[6][7]
