Assistant/Associate/Full Professor, Population Studies/Demography. The University of Minnesota invites applications for multiple open-rank, tenure-track or tenured faculty positions available beginning August 2013. We seek demographers or population researchers with established or emerging lines of high-quality population research who can actively contribute to the research and training missions of the University, the Minnesota Population Center (MPC), and its affiliated academic units. For each position, the tenure home will be in Applied Economics, Geography, History, Public Affairs, Public Health (Epidemiology and Community Health and Health Policy and Management), Sociology or others. The applicant’s research may be on any number of substantive areas (fertility, mortality, migration, historical demography, labor force dynamics, household and family dynamics, education and human capital, population and the environment, neighborhoods and urbanization, aging, and population approaches to health disparities and health policy).
Requirements include: a doctoral degree in demography or a discipline closely aligned with population research (e.g., economics, geography, public health, sociology); demographic research and training experiences; a strong publication record in relevant peer-reviewed journals; evidence of potential for obtaining independent external research funding; and evidence of potential for teaching graduate and undergraduate courses on substantive areas within demography.
MPC is a University-wide Center that provides a vibrant and highly collaborative interdisciplinary environment for population researchers from many disciplinary backgrounds (www.pop.umn.edu). The center provides shared infrastructure for demographic research and training and coordinates collaborative research across the University. MPC researchers (who come from 26 academic units across 10 colleges in the University) have long worked to improve the shared data infrastructure that underlies all demographic research. Although best known for its large-scale demographic data infrastructure projects, MPC houses numerous substantive, interdisciplinary research projects on population, health, education, the environment, the labor market, and related issues.
The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer. Applications received by October 15, 2012 will receive full consideration. For complete information and to apply online:
