There are a number of places to look for jobs in anthropology (and related fields) — all disciplines have their own outlets, although some of these are fairly general (as in the Chronicle).
This is the catchall for anthropologists, and most jobs in anthropology — tenure track or not — are listed here. But not all jobs are, in part because it costs money for people to place ads on each of these sites. So many schools with limited budgets will only post on 1-2 sites they think will reach their audience.
The British (and European) job market is a little different than the US and Canada — it starts in late spring, and moves much more quickly. Anthropology positions are often in non-Anthropology — but social science — departments.
Chronicle of Higher Ed
…tends to post a lot of jobs in community colleges, liberal arts institutions, and second and third tier research universities — it can be good to locate adjunct positions in your area.
…posts a wide variety of kinds of jobs, tending towards research universities. It’s also a reliable venue for late announcements (often visiting positions to fill vacancies).
Academic Keys
…tends to post jobs in administration — they can be fairly high level and bureaucratic.
Royal Anthropological Institute’s Vacancy Link
…includes mostly UK positions, including postdocs.
