AnthroJobs of the Week, 17 June 2017

Feel like working in the Windy City? It usually ranks as one of the top five food cities in the US, but we digress. Chicago-based Insight Consulting Group is looking for a senior qualitative analyst.  This is a BA or MA level position, depending upon years of relevant experience. This is a market research position looking at online “communities of interest.”

Want to stay in about the same time zone as Chicago but maybe switch your seasons around? Do you know Spanish, spuds, gender issues and M&E? Then you’d be a good match for a position at the International… Continue reading

One aspect of the future of anthropological practice is reflected in a posting for a contract-status Human Factors Researcher in Mountain View, CA.  Human factors research looks at how consumer products fit with the lifestyles of users by being “intuitive, purposeful and comfortable to use,” in the words of the posting. The research is used to affect design decisions and strategic planning related to how “users understand, wear, store, share, integrate the most indispensable objects in their life.” Among the many required qualifications are three years of applied research experience, statistical knowledge, and an understanding of methods.  The posting is… Continue reading

India should be a fascinating place to be for the next several years as economic development leads to cultural shifts. If you speak English and Hindi, a couple of positions are open with the “Going to School” project.  See their website at http://www.goingtoschool.com/jobs/.  One job for which anthropologists are sought is a project lead for a story writing effort for school children. This involves travel from Delhi to Bihar, one of India’s poorest states.  The other is a similar position as a storyteller/writer.  

Closer to home, the State of Texas has posted an intriguing position in Austin as a Mitigation… Continue reading

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.
