Job Opening for Professor, Population Studies/Demography, University of Minnesota

Print PDF

Assistant, Associate or Full Professor, Population Studies/Demography, University of Minnesota

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 including (but not limited to) 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. Successful applicants will be expected to continue and expand their own independent research initiatives and to work with others to cultivate new interdisciplinary collaborations as well as to teach and advise students.

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 features several very strong social science units and has one of the top public health schools in the country. The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer. MPC and its affiliated units support work-life balance, have a history of accommodating dual academic career couples, and encourage applications from women and members of under-represented groups.

For complete information and to apply, use the University of Minnesota's online employment system (requisition 179661) at http://employment.umn.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=105011

Call for Editorial Applications

Call for Editorial Applications

The Social Science History Association is an interdisciplinary group of scholars that shares interests in social life and theory; historiography, and historical and social-scientific methodologies. SSHA might be best seen as a coalition of distinctive scholarly communities. Our substantive intellectual work ranges from everyday life in the medieval world – and sometimes earlier -- to contemporary global politics, but we are united in our historicized approach to understanding human events, explaining social processes, and developing innovative theory.

SSHA is pleased to announce the availability of the position of Editor of the Association’s quarterly journal, Social Science History (SSH), which is published by Duke University Press.

We are s eeking a dynamic individual with outstanding communications skills, who will maintain the tradition of excellence of this 35 year old journal.  The position of Editor is normally held for a three-year term, with the possibility of a two year renewal.  The next term of our Editor will begin no later than July 1, 2012.

The Editor is responsible for solicitation, selection, peer review, and final approval of articles.  S/he will work closely with authors on necessary revisions, and will appoint and collaborate with an Editorial Board.

Institutional support, perhaps in the form of a graduate assistant, from a candidate’s home university is normally required for this Editor position. The association assists with some of the direct costs of manuscript tracking and article editing.

It is the Association’s intent that the next Editor will begin with a framework for online submissions in place.  Therefore, we would like to encourage interest amo ng teams of scholars, who need not be geographically near each other.

Letters of intent and formal bids for the SSH Editor position should be submitted to the Association’s Executive Director, William Block ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 607.255.4801), who will also be able to answer questions about this position.  Bids should include a cover letter from the proposed editor, along with curriculum vitae; a document detailing the extent of university support for this position; and a statement of commitment from the appropriate university administrator.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
