Click on “Advanced Job Search,” and add in further criteria that are important to you. You can add more details about region, as well as including only recently-listed jobs (e.g., within the past 3 days, 7 days, or 15 days). And you can include/exclude temporary, part-time, contract, etc. positions.
If you don’t find many jobs just using “anthropology” or “archaeology,” try a variety of other search terms relevant to your training and interests—including broad terms such as “social science,” “cultural resources,” “heritage management,” etc., as well as the kinds of places you might like to work, such as “museum,” “radio station,” “television station,” “newspaper,” “NGO,” etc.

New opportunity for graduate training in the area of development and inequality at Brown University
The Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University is home to the Graduate Program in Development (GPD). The program is supported by a multi-year NSF IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Training) grant. GPD promotes and supports interdisciplinary training and research on development for students pursuing a PhD in any of Brown’s social science departments (Anthropology, Economics, Political Science, and Sociology).
All PhD students at Brown receive five years of guaranteed support, but students who are selected to be GPD trainees are eligible for increased benefits, including additional fellowship support and research funds.
GPD also offers a wide array of interdisciplinary courses, methods modules, workshops, and institutional connections to many partners in the developing world. In addition, the GPD program hosts visiting faculty, organizes conferences, and provides seed grants for collaborative research.
We believe that GPD provides a unique graduate training experience that builds on disciplinary strengths while providing students the resources and opportunities to develop interdisciplinary research skills. The program is supported by over 25 faculty members from a wide range of departments with active research interests in development. As co-directors of the program, we are happy to answer any questions you might have.
For a full description of the program and a list of faculty, please see our website: www.watsoninstitute.org/gpd/.If you have questions, please send email to GPD@brown.edu.
