What is paleoanthropology? Can I find job as a paleoanthropologist?

Paleoanthropology is a scientific discipline that works on human evolution. It mainly studies the bones of fossil hominids. But also first stone tools of the Paleolithic times are the subject of that discipline.

But you can't find job easily. All over the world it not easy find a job in this subject. Only the universities and museums need anthropologists. But I believe the world need that job very much. While fossil records are difficult to find and easily destroyed, we need more paleoanthropologists.
