The Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation is a private grant-making foundation based in Omaha, Nebraska. With annual grant-making in excess of $500 million, it is one of the largest private donors supporting sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice, and the largest supporter of this work in the U.S. The Foundation is dedicated to achieving its mission through programming that is both respectful of women’s fertility desires and evidence based. With a core mission of preventing unintended pregnancy and ensuring access to safe abortion in the U.S. and globally, the Foundation works towards a world in which every woman controls her reproduction and all reproductive decisions are treated with dignity and respect. In addition to its work in reproductive health, the Foundation also enables low-income students in Nebraska to attend and succeed in college.
The Research & Evaluation Unit drives learning across the Foundation by providing technical support, guidance, and measurement expertise to the U.S., Global, and College Access and Success Programs. The team includes the Director and one Administrative Assistant, six Senior R&E Officers, two Officers, and four Associates. They have a diverse staff, about half of whom are people of color and about a quarter are LGBTQ+.

The San Jose State University Anthropology Department has gained national recognition for its innovative graduate and undergraduate programs, particularly its M.A. Program in Applied Anthropology. The department is committed to applying anthropology in an integrated, interdisciplinary way—by reconnecting the discipline’s subfields, making links with other SJSU departments through its Behavioral Science and Organizational Studies degree programs, launching a world-class graduate degree program in Applied Anthropology, and collaborating with organizations outside the University.
The SJSU Anthropology Department invites applications for a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Applied-Cultural Anthropology beginning in August 2022, subject to budgetary approval. Applicants must have completed a PhD in anthropology or a closely related field before the position begins. The position requires an applied-cultural anthropologist able to use anthropology to address “real-world” problems in and between organizations, communities, and networks, and to actively participate in interdisciplinary collaborations. The department is particularly interested in an applied-cultural anthropologist with expertise in one or more the following areas: design anthropology; infrastructures; climate and environment; business anthropology; social dimensions of technological systems; economic anthropology; human-computer interactions; and medical anthropology, health, and health equity.
