AnthroJobs of the Week, May 5, 2017

OK, we know Cinco de Mayo is a made-up excuse to drink cerveza, but in honor of this dubious holiday we wanted to look for jobs in Mexico.

These include working with children, the environment,  in Maya communities, and international trade. https://www.eliabroad.org/mexico-volunteer-internships

If you are looking for entry level work in Chicago, consider being an aptitude test administrator with the Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation . Maybe you can learn a little something about your own inherent skills: https://jocrf.bamboohr.com/jobs/view.php?id=12

Go to https://a127-jobs.nyc.gov/ and enter job ID 285253.

AnthroJobs: Jobs of the Week, March 20, 2017

I just finished reading an article discussing the code of ethics that the San people of South Africa drafted for researchers. It raises an important question that we must answer as anthropologists, how does our work benefit the cultures we research? Find the article here.

Since we are talking about “the field”, Amec Foster Wheeler Environment & Infrastructure seeks seasonal, on-call Archaeology Technicians and Field / Laboratory Supervisors to join their team in Louisville, KY. You will assist on surveys to identify and document archaeological sites as well as excavations to test the National Register site eligibility and large… Continue reading
