Anthrotech seeks Physical Anthropologist/Project Manager to start immediately. Anthrotech is an expanding company in Yellow Springs, Ohio specializing in applied anthropometry – the study of human body measurements as applied to problems of design and accommodation. Our roots go back to the 1950’s and we have evolved into the nation’s leader in anthropometric data collection, analysis and application.
We are currently seeking a motivated and enthusiastic physical anthropologist to join our growing family. This individual will apply his/her advanced knowledge of human biology, primarily involving such background as anatomy, biomechanics, anthropometry and statistics, to anthropometric survey management and client interface. Additional hands-on training will be given in landmarking, measuring, and data collection techniques. This highly visible position will be responsible for ensuring timely progress and reporting of an extensive anthropometric survey conducted at military bases throughout the United States. The ideal candidate will possess excellent verbal and written communication skills and the ability to successfully drive the remainder of the project to its completion, approximately 15 more months. This is a great opportunity to showcase your ability to balance scientific rigor, company culture and client confidence.
At Anthrotech our commitment to success provides challenges and opportunities for all of our employees. The manager of the survey must have the flexibility to travel routinely to various military installations to observe the data collection team and coordinate with the on-site team leader, as well as to interact regularly with our military client. The candidate should ideally possess graduate level training in a discipline such as anthropology, anatomy, biomechanics, kinesiology, and/or biostatistics. Previous experience with 3-D visualization software (e.g., Rhinoceros) and a Masters or Ph.D. in Anthropology or a related field is highly desirable.
If you are an ambitious and energetic individual who wants to make a difference in a growing organization, please apply by submitting a cover letter which also states when you would be available for hire, your resume, your college and graduate school transcript(s), and your salary requirements to Anthrotech, 503 Xenia Avenue, Yellow Springs, Ohio 45387 or email all the above materials to firstname.lastname@example.org. Proof of U.S. citizenship will be required.
