Job Description

How would you like to use your passion and expertise in anthropology to impact peoples for eternity? 

As a supported* anthropology consultant, you would apply your knowledge in anthropology to promote understanding and improved communication across social and cultural boundaries. This contributes to our work in language development, Scripture engagement, multicultural teams, training and planning. 

Today, over 2000 people groups, 170 million people, still don’t have the Bible translated into their languages! Wycliffe USA believes the Word of God can transform lives when people hear it in their own language or form, and we urgently need you to join the team!

Job Location: Global

Wycliffe USA has many open positions located in Africa, Asia, Europe, Americas, and the Pacific! Even if you live overseas, you must be legally authorized to work in the United States as per U.S. employment laws.

Every day is different! One day you might conduct and supervise socio-cultural research. Another day you might assist and train consultants and language teams to define needs, collect data and write research papers relating to cultures where they work. Still another day you might build positive and collaborative working relationships with members of language communities

This job might be for you if…

  • You have an M.A. or Ph.D. in Anthropology or related domain.
  • You have prior language program experience.
  • You have prior field experience as an Anthropology Specialist.


Supported staff (missionaries) with Wycliffe Bible Translators USA are members of a faith-based organization. If you become a member, you will receive extensive training and helpful tools to raise a team of prayer and financial partners in ministry; the gifts given to the preference of your ministry account provide for your salary, benefits and ministry-related expenses.
