Ethnoscientists work in the same places as other social and life scientists—universities, research institutes, government (National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, etc.) and non-government organizations, museums, and alternative medicine providers.

Others, especially enthobiologists, work for the biotech/pharmaceutical industry developing new products modeled on how indigenous peoples use animals or plants—for example, teas, cosmetics and drugs.
