In June 2011, Stone Age Institute Co-Directors Kathy Schick and Nick Toth led the multi-disciplinary search committee that hired Jackson Njau (originally from Tanzania; PhD, Rutgers University) as a faculty member of the Department of Geological Sciences at Indiana University and a research associate of the Stone Age Institute and CRAFT (Center for Research into the Anthropological Foundations of Technology).  Jackson has been working at Olduvai Gorge for more than two decades, is principal curator at the Museum of National Natural History in Arusha, Tanzania and paleoanthropologist with the ongoing Olduvai Landscape Paleoanthropology Project, and co-directs the Tanzanian International Paleoanthropological Research Project (TIPRP) with Dr. Leslea Hlusko of the University of California, Berkeley.  Prior to becoming a research associate at the Stone Age Institute and accepting a position at Indiana University, Jackson spent two years as a post-doctoral fellow working with Drs. Tim White and Leslea Hlusko at UC Berkeley.
