Job Description for Anthropologist

Anthropologists focus on answering complex questions regarding human origins by utilizing socio-cultural, biological, archaeological, and linguistic fields of study. To best understand their subjects, most anthropologists work closely with local cultures and the people they are researching, so both physical and mental adaptability to different and often-challenging life situations is very important in this position. From interviewing research subjects to in-field observations, anthropologists must be intrusive enough to extract necessary information while staying delicate and diplomatic enough to avoid disrupting the local aura.
