Any qualified employer wanting to get the word out about job postings for biological anthropologists, Paleolithic archaeologists, or human geneticists may write me, and I will post the ads free of charge. I started doing this in 2012 because I noticed that many good job positions were not being posted to the usual sources read by anthropologists. I make no warranty that these job ads are complete, and if you know of an advertised position that I don't have, please let me know!
