Universities and colleges are the most obvious settings, and it is true that a wide range of research and teaching does go on within those ivy-covered walls. However, scholars also find employment in the following settings:
- botanical gardens
- archaeological sites
In addition, certain scholars, such as anthropologists, sociologists, or archaeologists, conduct research in the field, in Africa, for example, or in Samoa, Papua New Guinea, and even within the shores of North America.
Throughout this book, we explore a variety of settings where you, as a job-hunting scholar, might find your niche.
