AnthroJobs of the Week, 25 August 2017

It’s not often you see a Fortune 500 company calling specifically for an MS in Applied Anthropology, but here is a job posting at Owens Corning that does just that: they are looking for a Product Research Scientist for their Granville, OH offices. The main objective is to provide research to guide the development of insulation products. Along with the aforementioned MS, qualifications include 3-5 years of qualitative research experience, freedom to travel (35%), industrial design experience, and R&D management experience. 

Or how about the Federal sector? The Federal Aviation Administration seeks a Foreign Affairs Specialist, to be based out of Washington, DC. Requirements include an anthropology degree (24 credit hours) and 1 year of federal experience in analyzing aviation policy and foreign affairs. As a federal job, this is open only to US citizens.

Both openings have rather specific skill sets required, but our bet is that there are at least a few anthropologists out there who could fit right in. It is our nature to be diverse.
