Santa Rose Junior College, in California, has posted an interesting job on the AAA Careers page. It is for a person to teach anthropology and direct a campus museum with a 3500 piece collection of “ethnic and tribal art.” They have two anthropology openings. I am calling attention to the first of these. Details can be found here.

We are seeking a dynamic and charismatic individual who will be dedicated to working with community college students in both large auditorium settings and small classes.

It is important that the successful candidate is committed to participating in department activities and college service, such as directing the museum and serving on department and college committees.
