Subject: Skilled Anthropologists Wanted
I'd like to introduce you to Context-Based Research Group, an
anthropological research firm that hires qualified ethnographers for
short-term contracts in their geographic locations. The pay is competitive
and our clients include private sector and non-profit organizations in need
of anthropological research in a variety of interesting areas. In addition
to employing anthropologists for our own studies, we also seek partnerships
with, and are a resource for, government, private and non-profit
organizations that have a need for experienced and skilled anthropologists
in their own research.
If you'd like to become part of our active database of anthropologists and
be considered for upcoming projects, please register online at
> . There are no costs to join
the database and be part of our network.
Current projects include a four-city ethnography of the relationship between
women and the outdoors and a longitudinal study on youth and interactive
technologies in the home. Most recently, a potential contract has emerged
that would utilize anthropologists around the world who have current
knowledge of specific culture areas and an interest in the impact of western
brands in these areas. Experienced ethnographers with a particular interest
in this project and in understanding how globalization plays out on the
local scale are encouraged to sign up and indicate this interest in the
comments section of the registration form.
As we continue to grow, our hope is that AnthroJob will become a valued
resource not only for anthropologists but for an increasing number of
organizations in need of the insight and knowledge our discipline can bring
